Generation Y

6a00e553e08332883401bb080f558e970d-800wi

We are the generation
with a tale of hardships on our lips
and sad poetry in our souls
Childhood was promising us
empty promises that will never be fulfilled.
Life will never be as good as it was back then.
We wage war against the establishment
with what little power we possess.
Cannot afford to make a real difference
Only the ones that are the problem can
So many people suffering
Many more bathing in self indulgence
mind numbing foolishness
Everyday, every hour, everywhere
There’s no where to get away from it
Only if you look inwards
can you see
 
Only by closing your eyes,
sealing off your ears,
and shutting your mouth,
quieting your mind,
and putting away your wallet.
But really, who can do that?
The masses are already gathered
gathered against themselves
the enlightened must gear up for a fight
a fight for truth and justice
and we may die trying
but at least we’ll die knowing.
We are Generation Y
and we’re living a lie.
We are Generation Y
and we’re living a lie.
We are Generation Y
and we’re living a lie.
