Teenage Society Revised Lyrics

by Ethan
(Nottingham)

Intro
Something's wrong with my teenage generation,
And I'm... uncorrupted, but feeling lonely and cold,
Where's the meaning to your songs?
That society´s got you all in a stranglehold?
All the girls have forgotten self respect,
And all the guys lie to themselves,
I had to get out of this
Before I succumbed to this hell...

They're like zombies, they're all the same,
Except that they´re not going for my brain,
Though they seem to have lost their own...
The adults say that we'll destroy the place,
Letting the world go up in flames,
Through no fault except that of ours alone,
And to think that this was our home...

Drink, sex and drugs are what they crave,
Chaining their bodies to their graves,
And it´s all in search of a good time,
Then the morning after they always pay,
Sickness, embarrassment and a bad headache,
Spending Sundays trying to clear their mind,
Waste of a weekend, I think you´ll find...

Music is mainly what's to blame,
Lyrics on love and sex are the aim,
And it usually goes straight into their heads...
The younger ones are getting worse,
Afflicted with this contagious curse,
Even the older ones will wish them dead,
But they all are, it has to be said...

They look to Twitter for their rise to fame,
But I couldn't care less about their name,
For the fact that they´re just another lost soul...
Wearing next to nothing, even baring breasts,
Or with their tongues out and 'Obey' on their chests,
Supposedly 'indie' when it's the same for all,
Sort your heads out, the writing's on the wall.

Bridge
(We need to find our feet, get out of this mess,
hope the hold weakens, and the people say 'Yes!
We're sick of this and we want out,
This is something we can do without!')

Slowly people are coming round,
Getting their feet back on the ground,
While you're stuck with your stupid ways...
We'll lay into you with sharpened words,
Making sure that you feel the hurt,
You´re no longer a 'legend', you're cast away,
Because we're back to normal, and it´s here to stay,
We've seen the errors of our ways,
And we're back to normal, and it´s here to stay.
