Hurling through space and time
Blessed with the human mind

Yet all we seem to do
Is wonder which weapons to use

Enough with the hell bent on destruction point of view
Why are we letting the elderly war mongers
selfishly guide the world to the brink
day after day, year after year, decade after decade
They want more, more, more, more

Driven by magic and the old
Into slavery the young are sold

At what point have you had enough
It’s time to call their bluff

Pollution, traffic on the edge of demise
They wish for someone to materialize
Concrete, news feeds, blister the mind
In a modern world full of ancient lies
Vomit opinions, catastrophic times
Disregard loved ones on the other side

When born we cannot see
The trust we have is key

As we grow, walk, speak and learn
We see the world that you burn

There isn’t one aspect of modern life that isn’t a
Blood boiling, pressure cooker stress infused
Treadmill nightmare. At no point is there ever a moment
for the body and mind to get a break, get a breath
Gain our bearings and collect our thoughts

In the past age and wisdom ruled
In the modern age the old are fools

Technology has far surpassed
Against our will they stand steadfast

When the elderly running the world today
Simply do not understand the
technology they are playing with
When the people in change
can’t forward a simple email,
Operate their television
or send a text message,
why in the world would I ever think
they are qualified to make decisions for US
