Let’s take a lifetime to examine this world
When we’re hurled into time we thought things would be better
But their anger, keeps progress -- aching ‘n’ aging ‘n’ asking
Why truth can’t-beset on anything, they’re all lying man,
But-I’m trying man / check-out my solid plan

I’ll move through out my life, like I will never fear anything
And keep my world small ‘cause too many people hate everything
But as for me, even though it’s contrary, I’ll be straight
‘Cause-honesty is the best legacy – what’s your legacy?

And when they come around
Our job's to put them down
Run it into the ground
And kick them while they're down

Welcome to the club
Welcome to the congregation
A lost and misled generation

Take a second to examine yourself
Let's find out how we managed to step into this hell/
'Cause I could've sworn, could've sworn just a minute ago
We were all on the same team/

We live our lives in fear that one day we might feel anything/
Under false assumptions claiming nothing means anything/
How can we make anyone else care when we stand with our noses high in the air/

I'd disown you. No hesitation/
I shouldn't be ashamed of my generation/
And I don't care where you're from or where you go to school
And I don't give a fuck about what you think is cool
I can only give respect when respect is due
That's the last thing I'd expect from you/
