lyrics

So ask me, "What's the problem with the younger generation?" while despondently sipping from your mug.
The customers keep yawning and the registrar's responding with disinterest and a healthy dose of smug.
But it makes no sense to dwell on things when we could be solving problems.
Yeah, we could be helping children, maybe we could feed the starving,
or maybe we could stew in our self-medicated stupor while the passer-bys insinuate their pity with their body language.
And now we want to know. We need direction, but we want the answer.
We need reform.
It's grown so dark in here, our faces disappear.
Maybe my concerns of oversaturating flavors is a bit misled and maybe misinformed.
But I think that it speaks volumes of our electronic culture, made appreciation feel more like a chore.
But the truth is I could do away with politics and tabloid headlines.
I could do without dramatic wealthy self-imposing people,
and I could do without excess consumption, but I do digress that life will tend to settle on the bottom-most denominator.
But now we want to know. We need direction, and we want the answer.
We want reform!!
So tell me you're an intellectual while you sputter out your facts.
How faith ain't nearly good enough, but still, but still I don't see you taking action.
So pit your mind up against mine, and tell me you're not in contention.
We can try to work this out, or we can talk about it later.
Hanging jaws and flapping mouths doesn't do no one no good, so let's put it off for now.
You're my friend! And we can disagree sometimes! It's okay to just wanna let it slide.
You've clearly got an axe to grind my friend, so let's just forget about it.
Let's you and me go get a drink.
It's grown so dark in here, our faces disappear.
We're neither far nor near, til now.
Please understand, I mean it when I say I hope you die.
But please don't get me wrong, because what I mean is
I hope you die of old age in happiness,
surrounded by your family and friends, your kids, and their kids, peacefully with no regrets.
I hope your life ends well for you.
I hope your life ends well for you.
So I hope you die, I hope I die, I hope that everyone dies.
I hope you die, I hope I die, I hope that everyone dies.
