Taste These Days

Downtown buildings with the swastikas
Look so appealing to me now because
I can see the architects standing there before the war
Looking out the window at the ocean view
Gotta wonder what a poor boy’s to do
‘Cause if I grew up here I’d think it was a bore

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Can’t lose those friends we never had
Can’t lose those friends we never had
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
All they ever did was think we’re mad
All they ever did was think we’re mad

So taste these days, they’re perfect
Taste these days, they’re perfect

Chubby little banker heating up the air
With his Superman pyjamas and his thinning hair
Propeller on his head just to help him count the beans
Among the local politicians is a man named Duck
Who loves the microphone and likes to push his luck
They say he works so hard
But then so does a washing machine

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Don’t want to work out on the sketch no more
Don’t want to work out on the sketch no more
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Not really what we came here for
Not really what we came here for

We came to
Taste these days, they’re perfect
Taste these days, they’re perfect

And so the kitchen counter has become the bridge
Like a general about to overtake the ridge
From the shore looking out upon the promise of the seas
Showing up on time and scoring all the goals
taste so good I even ate the bowl
and I liked it so much I had to go and buy the company

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
clouds of pink and shafts of blue
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
and all the colours of my love for you
all the colours of my love for you

Taste these days they’re perfect
taste these days they’re perfect
