Before the Labs

Download Song

This is what we were like
This is how voices sound
When they are not yet beset by the crown

Before the weight of that divine ton of bricks
Before the Fates kissed our Powerball picks
Before the labs
Before the scan
Before the fame and scandal that changed the whole game plan

Here’s the shot where I burst
What a day, what a day
What a day that was, that will be
There’s the spot where I stood
When everything changed
For the worse
Changed for good

Before we all pinned regret to our coats
Before that call that ripped our hearts through our throats
Before the labs
Before the scan
Before the fame and scandal that changed the whole game plan

When everything changes our legs are worn out from all the pedaling backwards
Even though we have hand brakes
But we keep spinning ‘em anyway

You still have time, relax
Innocence, in a sense
In a sense you could say
When we help lift that raft
That is the gaffe
That will cost us our backs

Before the Nobel awards got away
Before we learned power chords were passe
Before the labs, before the scan
Before the smear campaign and the shame and the pain
And the fame and scandal that derailed the whole game plan
