I was born in a pyramid By an old interstate Been down at the yard, workin' my whole life To follow my father's dream Then watch it fade away Wrapped in our old tired skin Peelin' away
All the flowers lately in our window lay in disarray The shadows are scattered like rings of gold And I'm watching the warm lights fade away God, I am in love with leavin' Like a fadin' dream Call out in the darkest moments of our love For the rest of my days, why let it linger? Come along we're the same Let's suffer through the change
Oh my God, where do I belong? Can I make it day to day? I was all alone at the startin' line When I watched you slip away
Now I'm on the run baby, and I don't know why But the fear it gets too much to take Doesn't matter just how hard you try When you feel so far away I'm talkin' of the old time Feeling dead this way Tired of the old life Feeling dead this way
When you're lost and you're runnin' But the roads have changed And the forces surround you But you lost control And you think that nobody's walkin' by your side When you're lost in some valley Runnin' far behind Yeah, you don't need nobody, yeah
Well there's a price for everything They'll try to kill you from the start So take control of anything that tries to pull us all apart I ain't sure of nothing, babe, 'til I can feel it in my heart So I keep movin' on Yeah, keep holdin' on, mm Yeah

"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
