I spent all day today sleeping off being sick so this is a substitute image.

THE THERMALS - "We Were Sick"

We were sick!
We were sick at the talk!
So far from where we started,
too far along to stop!

We were sick!
We were sick at the thought!
We never lose our grip,
and end up sick at the bottom!

Fed on the dirt!
Laid on the land!
Never gave a day away!
Never gave a damn!
Read all we could!
Shed all we had!
Every dirty germ
another lesson that threads into man!

We were sick!
We were sick at birth!
Stuck around, had our fun!
Stuck a fork, we were done!

We were sick!
We covered the earth!
Us and all our friends,
and anyone getting us medicine!

We were sick!
Sick in the brain!
Too young to kill
Too old to contain!

Stick out our tongue catching the acid rain!
We were high! We were alive! We were sick!

Never pure, Never aware
Never a cure, Never a care
Never a need, Never a damn, the legacy!
