Lyrics

And they keep telling me
You’ll know when your older
When life’s a bit more dark and life’s alittle colder
If you ain’t learned it by 25
Just give it a bit more time
And if you don’t know then
Then try it again in maybe ten

Oh it never changes
real life happens in ranges
Try to tell me there is one way to go
I say no no no
You show me one path and I’ll show you 4
You show me your side and I’ll show you more
Oh more more more
Life is for living
Not just for the rich but also for the poor
(Not to get rich but for the giving)
Oh cause, your money won’t mean much when your dead
Spend a wheel barrel just to buy some bread
Life is about the people and places we hold close
And the rest, who knows

(Chorus)
Who knows, who knows
Maybe I’ll know when I’m grown
It’ll be better at 44 and if not then I’ll never know
same old story and here it goes
The truth is
Is who the fuck knows
Who knows, who knows
Maybe I’ll know when I’m grown

But so far the view is split
And most people are full of shit

Met a man, when I was younger who told me boy just wait
You have love in your heart and dreams in your mind, ain’t it great
But if you ain’t looking over your shoulder
You’ll too start to hate
Your dreams will start to smolder
But I say no no no,
That’s not for me
You can let the world tell you which ways up
But you have to see
But the truth is, you never fail if you show up
So no no no,
I won’t take your pill
Young or not imma take my fill
Of liiiiife
Oh of life
What’s it all for anyway
To buy a house and lounge away?
Money isn’t worth that much to me (maaay)
If you can’t buy your sanity

How old are you kid
I’m 29
That’s a great age to be alive
But just wait, won’t be so great
When you get older, it’ll be harder mate
Well what about Shaolin monks who just get better
What prince who didn’t give a fuck
Well those people got the cash (and shaolin’s kick some ass)
Can do what they want
So your telling me success is money?
That’s kinda funny,
Who made that system anyway


(Chorus)
Who knows, who knows
Maybe I’ll know when I’m grown
It’ll be better at 44 and if not then I’ll never know
It’s the same old story and here it goes
The truth is
Is who the fuck knows
Who knows, who knows
Maybe I’ll know when I’m grown
