burnt my books
Twenty five years doesn't matter anymore
I stand around the streets
I lie around the floor
looking at the sky 
I watch the world go by
This was founded years ago
By broke slaves, years ago
Who did not have, years ago
By broke brothas in the 20s, years ago
Who did not have when we
just a tragic tale
Because five short minutes of lovin'
Done brought me twenty long years in jail

Well, like a fool in a hurry I took her to my room
Twenty five years since I woke up trembling
Twenty five years since that terrible dream
I could see that the world was crumbling
Nothing is ever
A postcard of Byron by the bed
It's a reminder of every word that he said
To die in the arms of a twenty year old
A figure of porcelain with moves
the good times go?
Life was so much easier twenty years ago.

I guess I should stop by Mr. Johnson's hardware store
His only son was my friend Joe
But
year has gone by
And I'm still the one by your side
After everything that's gone by
There's still no one saying goodbye
Though another year has gone by
Time means nothing
Time means nothing to me anymore
Time means nothing
Time means nothing to me anymore

Twenty years ago
Twenty years ago
always preaching bout his past
I just kept screaming" Come on, dad!
That was twenty years ago
You don't know me at all!
Trying to talk to you is like
To justify your madness
Will leave you crying
For the pain that grows

[Chorus]
Twenty-five years, twenty-five years
I tried to be a man and face my
really good as gold 
She can make my grandpa 
Feel like he's six years old

I got 20:20 vision and that's all I need 
Enough to keep my baby here by
20/20
20/20
20/20
20/20

It's goin' down
Not now but right now
By now you know the sound
It's dilation, cats with 20/20

I tell nickel and dimers try
centuries gone by
Twenty centuries gone by, come home
Cycles of heaven, twenty centuries gone by
Twenty centuries gone by, come home

Cycles of heaven, twenty
Is this just an illusion
That I made inside my head to get me by?
Twenty years in debt
Twenty years in the government
Twenty years can never get me
you're allured to.
Every day is progress,
Every day feels just the same.

She looked around.
How did I get here?
Twenty years goes by so fast.
How
went by
Twenty years went by

The wilderness of these streets
The neon trees shine their lights down on me.
Years of defeat.
Years of defeat.
twenty one

Now me and you never moved the town boy we just kept on living here
And life's been pretty tough son with the past twenty one years
I
good as gold. 
She can make my Grandpa, feel like he's six years old. 

I got 20/20 vision, and that's all I need. 
Enough to keep my baby here by
Since we first said I love you it's been twenty years tonight
I moved by and love refused to go
It seems like only yesterday or maybe just last
eight by eight
Twenty by twenty bars, I demonstrate
Four by four, eight by eight
Twenty by twenty bars, I demonstrate

Still blastin' away
Spit and put
always seemed to bore me
'Cause only those I really love will ever really know me

Once I was twenty years old, my story got told
Before the morning
adjustable spanner
Industry junkies
Regurgitated cabaret under the hammer
They were running the show

[Chorus]
Let's hear it for this year's thing
Come
away
Month to month, year to year
They all run together
Time measured by the peeling of paint on the luncheonette wall

They sat together in the empty
Born from the fire clean, crawling in the dirt like war
5 years, my mother gave a voice for war. 
10, I was dead, born again with eyes for war
By
rain
It's a bright sunny day when I see you run my way
But it took me twenty years to get to you
It's a bright sunny day when I see you run my way
