This can't be living now
If so then show me how
We’ll shake (shake) shake the night away
We shook (shook) shook the night away

I want a love like this love was young
But will I die as I become
You’ll find it at the bottom of it all

We got it all got it all got it all till the revelation comes
We got it all got it all got it all till the revelation comes

I want a world like my teacher told me it would be
I want a love like my parents told me it would be

When I was born I defined your times
But they were nothing, nothing like mine
We’ll shake (shake) shake the night away
We shook (shook) shook the night away

It feels like school again, but learning's alright man
You’ll find it at the bottom of it all
We got it all got it all got it all till the revelation comes
We got it all got it all got it all till the revelation comes

I want a world like my teacher told me it would be
I want a love like my parents told me it would be

We’ll shake (shake) shake the night away
We shook (shook) shook the night away

Well this can't be living now
If so then show me how
We’ll find it at the bottom of it all

We got it all got it all got it all till the revelation comes
We got it all got it all got it all till the revelation comes

I want a world like my teacher told me it would be
I want a love like my parents told me it would be

    There's more to life than this material world and you may think you're living life by accumulating those materialistic goods but once the revolution comes you'll see there is nothing but love.

    A person went to school and hated it. Their teacher told them if they go to school they'll be successful. They continued school and as soon as they got a little power, it got to their heads and they want it all now. (even thought they can't believe they're successful/think it's too good to be true). Their teachers and parents were right.
