30/90 lyrics

30/90

JONATHAN
Stop the clock - Take time out
Time to regroup before you lose the bout
Freeze the frame - Back it up
Time to refocus before they wrap it up

Years are getting shorter
Lines on your face are getting longer
Feel like you're treading water
But the riptide's getting stronger

Don't panic, don't jump ship
Can't fight it, like taxes
At least it happens only once in your life

They're singing, "Happy Birthday"
You just wanna lay down and cry
Not just another birthday, it's 30/90

Why can't you stay 29
Hell, you still feel like you're 22
Turn thirty 1990
Bang! You're dead,
What can you do?
What can you do?
What can you do?

MICHAEL
Clear the runway - Make another pass
Try one more approach before you're out of gas

JONATHAN
Friends are getting fatter
Hairs on you head are getting thinner
Feel like a clean up batter
On a team that ain't a winner?

MICHAEL
Don't freak out, don't strike out
Can't fight it, like City Hall

JONATHAN
At least you're not alone
Your friends are there too
They're singing, "Happy Birthday"

JONATHAN and MICHAEL
You just wish you could run away

JONATHAN
Who cares about a birthday?
But 30/90, hey

Can't you be optimistic?
You're no longer the ingenue
Turn thirty, 1990
Boom! You're passe

JONATHAN and MICHAEL
What can you do?

JONATHAN
What can you do?
What can you do?

Peter Pan and Tinkerbell
Which way to Never Never Land?
Emerald City's gone to hell
Since the wizard

ALL
Blew off his command

JONATHAN
On the streets you hear the voices
Lost children, crocodiles
But you're not into
Making choices, wicked witches,
Poppy fields, or men behind the curtain
Tiger lilies, ruby slippers

ALL
Clock is ticking, that's for certain

JONATHAN
They're singing, "Happy Birthday"
I just wish it all were a dream
It feels much more like doomsday
Fuck
ALL
30/90

JONATHAN
Seems like I'm in for a twister
I don't see a rainbow, do you?

ALL
Turn 30 in the 90's

JONATHAN
Into my hands now
The ball has passed
I want the spoils, but not too fast

The world is calling
It's now or Neverland
Why can't I stay a child forever
and
30/90
30/90
30/90
30/90
30/90
30/90
What can I do?

ALL
What can I do?
