lyrics

I worked with Abbas some years ago
He was a doctor from the state of Palestine
In the meat section of a big department store
I was 16 he was 49
It was a cash in hand job it worked well for me
I was only there for the summer Abbas was there indefinitely
We talked about his homeland politics and the state of it
most of all we talked about his family and how much he missed his kids

Time flies by so fast that was more than ten years ago
Little by little I remember him less
I wish it wasn't so

Finn was my grandpa
He was a communist
In World War Two him and his brother
Fought the nazis
In 1943 Finn became a refugee his brother had been killed by the fascist regime
cause of his ideology
He never talked about the war but I asked him plenty of times
I was six years old when Finn my grandpa died
I wish he was still alive

Time flies by so fast twenty years ago seems like yesterday
When grandpa and I set fire to his backyard I wish I could relive that day

I'm 27 now
same age as jury cobain was when e died
What was on his mind
would he still play music if he still was alive
My sister listened to punk rock
She's eight years older than me
She had a poster of the pistols on her wall and she got me my first cd
She lives in India now
Her and her husband's got a beautiful child
A product of love olive skin and laughing eyes

Time flies by so fast spend it with the people you love
