Age of No Innocence

from Postcards in Real Time by Unquiet Nights

lyrics

The cold reminds me of a time
When I was young and infantile
Concrete dust was in the air
And metal lying everywhere

We stood and watched the main street fall
Not 50 feet away from it all
Innocence was fading fast
Who would've thought that it could last

Oh something's going wrong
The age of innocence is gone
Oh what are we gonna do
The age of Innocence is through

We spent the summer's in our room
The ceasefire couldn't come too soon
We couldn't get a taxi home
Cause they wouldn't trust us on the phone

That night I lay awake in bed
With helicopters overhead
The army would patrol the streets
Government was obsolete

Oh something's going wrong
The age of innocence is gone
Oh what are we gonna do?
In March of 1992
