lyrics

We’re walking through markets on fire
Nostalgic, so everyone’s strokin the past
Wiping the sweat from our temples
Our goal in our mind we just hope that we’ll last
Boomers’ll ridicule, faded, so miniscule
Spewing to gloat and to laugh
Screaming and blaming the people who burn
While they’re standing there holding a match
We’re broken and crass, done in for life
We’re holding our baggage right under our eyes
Faking a face like we’re under the knife
Smiling while looking for something to fight
…we’re animals caged
Chewing the fat off a cannibal’s plate
The ringleader’s fixin to land us in jail
But anarchy’s only a stampede away
Sick of the plan, we can’t stand the insanity
Splitting humanity down
The middle, we’re livid and bitter and pissed
And we’re gripping to apathy now
We scratch and we scramble for answers
When really we’re all only after the crown
But fuck it, we’ll leave, let the capital burn
Cuz it’s time to abandon this town
They’ve alienated a whole generation
…we’re growing impatient
Sick of the myth that we’re broken and lazy
…from those who betrayed us
…they’re stoking the flames
…they don’t know the pain
Caused by their actions, it’s basic neglect
Now we’re fixin to get up and show em this rage

Generation of the living dead
You buried us but we will live again

You told us from birth and you drilled in our heads
That you want us to follow our dreams
Just go to college, you’ll get a good job…
As long as you’ve got a degree
But now we don’t dream cuz it’s been a damn while
Since anyone’s gotten some sleep
The world you prepared us for’s not what you handed us
All of it’s rotten deceit
You promised us everything, got us excited
And now you’ve the gall to call us entitled?
…we are what you made us
Now as we struggle you won’t even face us
…we’re sick in a haze
Paid all our dues and got minimum wage
…the system is set to exploit us
And now we all live with this rage
…you’re sick of us getting offended like
kids these days cannot laugh
…you cling to archaic ideas, it’s
that shit we have to smash
…your ignorant jokes are a product of
white patriarchal trash
…but winter is coming, these snowflakes’ll
soon be an avalanche
…you long for the “good old days”
But they were only good if you were straight male and white
…you long for American values
But patriotism’s been stained by the Right
Y’all have been called on your bullshit
And now you just run with it, stuck in a lie
But honestly we’re all just anxiously waiting
For y’all motherfuckers to die
