Of Mice & Men – Broken Generation lyrics

[Verse 1]
He sits and he waits,
Feeling broken and hollow.
Hands held close to his face,
Screaming why do I bother?
They'll just tear me down,
Rip me apart, cast aside like a sinner,
With no words from the wise
.

[Pre-Chorus]
Will you ever learn?
Will you ever learn?
Will you ever learn?
Learn to listen!

[Chorus]
Can you hear them calling?
You'll testify to justify,
You have to find a way!
Can you hear them calling?
With arcane eyes you're staring back
At someone with no face!
Can you hear them calling?

[Verse 2]
She lies there in wait,
And feeling so hollow.
Can't find love in this place,
Left alone with her sorrow.
All the promises you made when you
Stood by her side were so broken,
When you threw it away.

[Pre-Chorus]
Will you ever learn?
Will you ever learn?
Will you ever learn?
Learn to listen!

[Chorus]
Can you hear them calling?
You'll testify to justify,
You have to find a way!
Can you hear them calling?
We'll mobilize, not pacify
To save another day.
Can you pick up all the pieces of this broken generation?
(Broken generation)
Can you hear them calling?

[Bridge]
The road to hell is paved in good intentions and apathy,
What did you expect when common sense is your enemy?
I'd rather burn alive than drown inside your reality.
Can you hear me? Are you listening?

[Chorus]
Can you hear them calling?
You'll testify to justify,
You have to find a way!
Can you hear them calling?
We'll climb the walls to
Scratch the sky to save another day.
Can you pick up all the pieces of this broken generation?
(Pick up all the pieces of this broken generation)
Can you hear them calling?

    Everyone is trying to "socialize" or be social on the media, but they never look up to see their reality of a person who just wants to be recognised in person. People will empathise and help over the media, but not in person. People will love someone and support someone on the media, but everyone wants someone to be there with them in reality, not media, and that is the problem with the world today. People need to be held and told they are loved, not over the media.

    It means that this generation does not interact with one another face to face. They are glued to their phones. When people try to talk to them they don't want to put down their phones. When people like the two characters in the video don't have devices they can't talk to them. That's why they pull out connections to the phones.
