Liner Notes: 

10 minute write. Too early for lyrics

Lyrics: 

Im from a generation way back when
And things were not like now
Im trying to survive in this modern world
But I’m not sure quite how

Its all so very different now
Things now seem oh so fast
Everything’s just throw away
Nothings built to last

You see me like a dinosaur
I know thats what you think
I know my time has been and gone
Im pretty near extinct

No more pen and paper
Its smart phones for us all
Devices that do all the work
Im feeling like a fool

Half caf, decaf lattes
Smashed avocado too
I don’t even recognise the menu
I really have no clue

You see me like a dinosaur
I know thats what you think
I know my time has been and gone
Im pretty near extinct

But hey i have the pleasure
Of one that got to get old
So im still carrying on playing my cards
Im not ready to fold

I still know more than you’ll ever know
Or even what you think
Im still going to have some more fun
Before i am extinct

A humorous but still poignant take on things-- I feel this way myself from time to time!

A very fine lyric about the truth of our times. All we dinosaurs can do is keep on as best we can. I'm afraid there's no going back.
