This is the Golden Age
It's hard to imagine
With the way I feel today
That this is the Golden Age
The Golden Age

Somewhere I failed
Somewhere I lost you
In a black crowd of crows
And shiny things
I can't remember

This is the Golden Age
This is the Golden Age
The Golden Age

It seems like I'm high
But baby I'm crawling
In the unbearable days
I threw away
But I should have savored
The flaxen light
Off of the dying wheat
Your rye whiskey mouth
And your dandelion teeth

This is the Golden Age
This is the Golden Age
This is the Golden Age
This is the Golden Age

There ought to be some Ian Dury on the playlist, though I'm not sure how much he and Pure Prairie League would've worked out.

 
As long as it was from his New Boots and Panties album something might have worked out

I love this lyric.  It is apropos of the song's title:

The flaxen light
Off of the dying wheat
Your rye whiskey mouth
And your dandelion teeth

You are a very wise person.

A lot of Cracker songs that I've heard don't have great lyrics. The singer sounds so emotionally detached on this one that he reminds me of the "singer" from Cake. 

 
You need to listen to more Cracker.  Try the Gentleman's Blues album first,

Is this a dude from Camper Van Beethoven? Please: skip!!!
Would've been (only slightly) better as an acoustic song.
Beck next? Anything could top this. Boring as hell.
'Silver, Blue and Gold'?
Andrew Gold?
ANYthing.

I don't actually agree but I totally needed to see that today

Bill's doing a gold theme. How appropriate since the price of gold is at an all-time high today.
Also very nice!
