My generation has been bred into stupidity
A government issue codependency
High on freedom then drowning in debt
I still can’t balance a checkbook yet
My math teacher fails me because I won’t call him master
But you’ll give me detention when I won’t let you harass her
You dismantle the arts and ridicule her people
For daring to do something you never could dream to
Standing up for what you believe?
Keep your mouth shut or you’ll learn what it means to bleed.
When we turn eighteen we can smoke we can die
For our country’s flag raised up high
You tell me I’ll regret my tattoos, that I’m too young to understand
Yet you expect me to have the next ten years planned
A generation of parents telling us sink or swim
To the most poorly prepared lot of them
