walking backwards lyrics – angela ammons

falling snowflakes, melting in the sun
dead end sweepstakes, heaven’s growing numb
weekend sandman, stealing innocence
conscious dreaming, last line of defense

why do we walk backwards
down a road that never ends?
not knowing where we’re going
just seeing where we’ve been

can’t find no direction
though we try hard to pretend
that we’re not walking backwards
but we are again and again

is it too late to change?
velvet roses, blinded by the heat
teenage grownups
p*ssing on their painted legacies

why do we walk backwards
down a road that never ends?
not knowing where we’re going
just seeing where we’ve been

can’t find no direction
though we try hard to pretend
that we’re not walking backwards
but we are, again, and again, and again

is it too late to change?
ivory castles, all fall down
false religions being crowned
politicians tied and bound

we have to make a stand today
the time has come for us to change

whey do we walk backwards
down a road that never ends?
not knowing where we’re going
just seeing where we’ve been

can’t find no direction
though we try hard to pretend
that we’re not walking backwards
but we are, again, and again, and again
