Well you say your generation
Learnt from all the past mistakes
And you build your reputation
On your passion to make them pay

And you sing your revolution
In the message of a song
And though you try so hard to change them
If they can't hear the words
They can't sing along

All my generation let's be the ones who see
It takes one generation to bend on one knee
And take responsibility
Or we're just going to see it go on and on

Well the words need re-definition
And our minds they need to change
We got to face the recognition
If you want things to change
You can't stay the same

And the sons they need to father
In a way they did not receive
And the word of this revolution
Is to give and not wait to receive
