歌詞

I used to think (before old age beset me)
That brains could fill the pantry of the poor
But where did all my celebration get me?
I'm just as hungry as I was before

So what's the use?
See the smoke float free
Into ever colder coldness
So what's the use, could you tell me?
It's the same with me

The straight and narrow path leads to disaster
And so the crooked path I tried to tread
That got me to disaster even faster
(And they say we shall be happy when we're dead)

So what's the use?
See the smoke float free
Into ever colder coldness
So what's the use, could you tell me?
It's the same with me

You older people, full of expectation
At any moment now you walk the plank
The future's for the younger generation
And yes, even if that future is a blank

So what's the use?
See the smoke float free
Into ever colder coldness
So what's the use, could you tell me?
It's the same with me

So what's the use?
See the smoke float free
Into ever colder coldness
So what's the use, could you tell me?
It's the same with me
