Half a Century High Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
In the tube where I was born
I could have sworn
There was so much to see
There was so little left to be
But I was free
Verse 2
The world at my command
Through the doubts I ran
Looking for a man
That looked like me
Verse 3
And now it can be told
I'm a quarter a century old
But I'm a half a century high
Verse 4
In the tube where I was grown
I was alone
The figure on the floor
The dream behing the door
The sound was low
Verse 5
Ball game on the street
Disappeared behing my feet
Out of breath my heart would beat
To see a show
Verse 6
And now it can be told
I'm a quarter of a century old
But I'm half a century high
Verse 7
In the tube where I was killed
I was fulfilled
The lines of light would bend
I'd stare until the end
And then again
Verse 8
Fascinated by the fad
I gave all the mind I had
And whenever I was sad
I had my friends
Verse 9
And now it can be told
I'm a quarter of a century of old
But I'm a half a century high
