about

Young Man, Old Boy is a luxuriously infectious song TIMI TEMPLE has written about maturing into his 20's... As a millennial, he's reaching the age where he's no longer young, and not yet old. This song highlights the juxtaposition of the two...

The bridge includes lyrics "Too old, for little sleep... Too young, for counting sheep... Too old, for getting high... Too Young, for staying dry"

Throughout the song he also alludes to the economic stresses that social conditioning has on youth and how culture is dwindling in the face of capitalism...

Lyric excerpts: "I'm less hasty, care for safety, citizen of law" "I work for gravy on the daily but my pockets poor"

lyrics

Running from time, but it’s time to realise, that the clock doesn’t lie, no nobody can hide,
Scared of getting old, scared of being alone, oh I’m losing control, oh oh

I’ll turn into a young man,
Or am I just an Old Boy?
Come out from my cave man,
Shooting like an asteroid,
Oh, I’m running from time, but it’s time to realise
That I’m a young man...

i’m a lazy, little hazy than I’ve been before
got a lady, but no baby, is she wanting more?
i’m less hasty care for safety, citizen of law
work for gravy on the daily but my pockets poor

am i getting old? where did my time go?

work for gravy on the daily but my pockets poor and fk that fk that fk that

Stuck in the middle try na figure out this riddle, am i old am i young, am i old am i young,
Oh my track life is a scribble, but little by little, i am old i am young i am old i am young

I’ll turn into a young man,
Or am I just an Old Boy?
Come out from my cave man,
Shooting like an asteroid,
Oh, I’m running from time, but it’s time to realise
That I’m a young man...

Too old, for little sleep
Too young, for counting sheep

Too old, for getting high
Too young, for staying dry

I’ll turn into a young man,
Or am I just an Old Boy?
Come out from my cave man,
Shooting like an asteroid,
Oh, I’m running from time, but it’s time to realise
That I’m a young man...
