Who's that talking over there? Years? Bugger off. I'm awesome now and intend to be later.

The song is "Choreography" by the American art-rock band Cire.

My favorite lyrics quote: "Years don't teach anything if you're not listening". People often use the phrase "that's disrespectful". And have in their minds that you should respect older people a priori, just because they've seen more, they've experienced more, they know more. Well, that's a fucking lie. There are old people that know shit about shit, that are old-fashioned (read conceited, bigoted, and close-minded). You earn respect by being a person, by your acts, achievements, views on life, etc. Respect doesn't mysteriously appear with accumulated years. So if you think you deserve respect, ask your self why. Do you? Really? Listen to the years. They have a thing or two to say.
