lyrics

What ever happened to the days when kids used to go outside and play
Now it seems like all they do is sit around playing video games
Maybe I'm just old fashioned and this world is passin' me by
and maybe things aren't so bad, these are just different times

Oh but, how long are we going to carry on this way before we go too far
How long are we going to isolate ourselves
before we fall apart

I like homemade ice cream on a summer night
and the silhouettes of children dancing in the waning light
I keep searching for a reason or a rhyme
Maybe I was just meant for another time

What ever happened to grace and civility, the more I look the less I see
when our children can't go to school together unless you agree with me
I've got myspace and you've got yours, like if we build a fence tall enough we can end our wars
But we're blinded by the walls of this utopian myopia, divided we are bound to fall

Oh but, how long are we going to carry on this way before we go too far
How long are we going to isolate ourselves before we fall apart

I like homemade ice cream on a summer night
and the silhouettes of children dancing in the waning light
I keep searching for a reason or a rhyme
Maybe I was just meant for another time

I like homemade ice cream on a summer night
and the silhouettes of children dancing in the waning light
I keep searching for a reason or a rhyme
Maybe I was just meant for another time
