lyrics

As adolescents we were mad and restless
Didn't give a fuck, living fast and reckless
Soon enough the world kicked our ass and left us
So we suck nostalgia like the past is precious
A promise is blasphemy, it's cash they blessed us
Label it laziness if we ask to rest up
We'll burn our gifts like a bastard x-mas
Then swallow our coals and eat ash for breakfast
Call it entitlement, generation of idle men
Gotta fight, but it's rigged so we fucking cheat and we lie to win
Pull on the wool, there's no light, but you're blinding them
Batter them down until no fight is inside of them
Crippled in thought, now we're riddled with doubt
Eyes on the clock as we figure it out
It's a masquerade, but we're living it out
Left to our own, so let's give it a shout

Hook:
1984 to 2001
Our future has passed, can't you see that we're done?
From 1984 to 2001
Our future has passed, can't you see that we're done?

All the messages you're sending representing the ending
We're just resenting cuz it's nothing but a lie you're defending
False hope, even with the best of intentions
Bent on commending, but you're only offending
Everybody started with a gleam in their eye
Wet behind the ears, the game is leavin em dry
And now to numb it all the dealers only keepin em high
Otherwise the animals are bleeding tonight
This hole's so deep that we'll never see the light again
Even if we're seeing red we're never gonna fight again
Tell em keep it moving, cuz the prize is only right ahead
I'd rather hear the truth, even if it might offend
We're lied to from the day we leave the cabbage patch
Until the day we're tossed out penniless, no baggage packed
You can't believe that? Yes I do as matter fact
We're looking for the future, but there's nothing for us after that

hook

I've got the product, but I find it hard to find a buyer
If I can't sell it soon I'm going crazy - Michael Myers
This useless piece of paper doesn't mean I'm getting hired
My discontent had got me lashing out, it'll get me fired
I tossed a couple pennies in the wishing well
Listen to the voices whisper, telling me to give em hell
This affair will end in bloodshed, kiss and tell
Slow recovery from the days I slipped and fell
I've got this self defeating can't do frame of mind
I'm just sick and fucking tired of this lame design
Only goal they've got is to make em blind
I might as well just off myself, fucking save em time
No, I refuse to stop now
No, I will not be blocked now
No, I will not be a soldier in their army by default
I will not be shot down
