Remember when the days were long
And rolled beneath a deep blue sky
Didn't have a care in the world
Mommy and daddy were standin' by
"Happily ever after" fails
We've been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers clean all small details
Since daddy had to fly.

I know a place where we can go
Untouched by men
Watch the clouds go rolling by
And the grass wave in the wind
Lay your head back on the ground
Let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
This is the end, this is the end of the innocence.

O' beautiful, for spacious skies
Now those skies are threatenin'
They're beating plowshares into swords
For this tired old man that we elected king
Armchair warriors often fail
We've been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers clean up all details
Since daddy had to lie.

I know a place where we can go
And wash away your sin
Watch the clouds go rolling by
The tall grass wave in the wind
Lay your head back down on the ground
Let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
This is the end, this is the end of the innocence.

How long this will last
Now we've come so far, so fast
Something back there in the dust
That same small town in each of us
I need to remember this
So baby give me one more kiss
Let me take one long last look
Before we say goodbye.
Lay your head back on the ground
Let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
This is the end, this is the end of the innocence.  up
