  6. Shakedown 1979

    Cool kids never have the time

    On a live wire right up off the street

    You and I should meet

    June bug skipping like a stone

    With the headlights pointed at the dawn

    We were sure we'd never see an end to it all

    And I don't even care to shake these zipper blues

    And we don't know just where our bones will rest

    To dust I guess forgotten and absorbed

    Into the earth below

    Double cross the vacant and the bored

    They're not sure just what we have in the store

    Morphine city slippin' dues down to see

    We don't even care as restless as we are

    We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts

    And poured cement, lamented and assured

    To the lights and towns below

    Faster than the speed of sound

    Faster than we thought we'd go

    Beneath the sound of hope

    Justine never knew the rules

    Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls

    No apologies ever need be made

    I know you better than you fake it to see

    That we don't even care to shake these zipper blues

    And we don't know just where our bones will rest

    To dust I guess forgotten and absorbed

    Into the earth below

    The street heats the urgency of now

    As you see there's no one around

  7. Another "Go-To" song whenever I need A pick-me-up. I can feel the video . . . . . .smh

  8. Nobody has fun like that anymore.

  9. No matter how old this song it is people from our era we'll always feel like it's yesterday in a nostalgic sense

  10. I’ve cried to this song before…. just for the record

  11. I’m a Gen Z so I wasn’t even in 1979, and I’m feeling an emotion that doesn’t exist


  13. The best time capsule tune that there ever was.

  14. god damn, it was the breaking bad demo!

  15. This song is about nostalgia…
    Who ever you are… Don't regreat anything… Yo are who you are, right now because your past accions, good or bad it dosen't matter., This is a Game, we lose and win sometimes, but, is about knowledge of This all thing call "The creation".

  17. Inspired by Cream's As You Said.

  18. Dang I get goosebumps listening to this song

  19. This song always brings the sweetest memories of childhood & epic teenage times.
    I want to go back so bad!!😭😊

  20. I miss those Amish haircuts

  21. Generations growing up staring into their phones will never quite understand these lyrics, never know their tug.
    In 1979, is was 19 and off to the Navy for 20 years…
    I'm 61 this month… and I get a lump in my throat every time I hear this song…just like the first time I looked up and saw there's no one around..
