Lyric "Down With The Shine"

Down with the shine, the perfect shine
That poisons the well, and ruins my mind
I get took for a ride every time
Down with the glistening shine

[Verse 1]
It's in with the new, and it's out with the old
Out goes the warm, and in comes the cold
It's the most predictable story told
In with the young, out with the old


[Verse 2]
A belly full of high-dollar win
A fat hand, a fat wallet too
Things change and get strange
With the movement of time
It's happening right now to you


It's a real bad time to bring up the truth
Though we search we found no
Fountain of youth
Not in Spain, nowhere near anywhere
Close to here

[Verse 3]
There's nothing good because nothing lasts
And all that comes here, it comes to pass
I would voice my pain but the change wouldn't last
All that comes, it comes here to pass
