She stares at me from the book shelf
Eyes a startling white
How did your picture
get so much nearer since lunch

Oh misty charcoal outline
won't you share some wise words
Make everything clearer
before I get nearer to 25

Cause I can't decide
No I can't decide

Oh how did you know that you wanted to
Become a master of what you do
Your legacy holds one string to your bow
and you're the best

But I don't have time to specialise
Don't seem to have the room to focus
Legs always bouncing
Feet always itching to move on

Cause I can't sit still
No I can't sit still

Maybe we're all in the know
Counting our string to our bow
bow, bow

A generation of everything
Ad nothing at the same time
We're all ambidextrous multi perplexed
we're trying hard

But I can't decide
No I can't decide

Maybe we're all in the know
Counting our string to our bow
bow, bow

Go, Go, Go, Go, Go.
