I was sayin let me out of here before I was
even born--it's such a gamble when you get a face
It's fascinatin to observe what the mirror does
but when I dine it's for the wall that I set a place

I belong to the blank generation and
I can take it or leave it each time
I belong to the ______ generation but
I can take it or leave it each time

Triangles were fallin at the window as the doctor cursed
He was a cartoon long forsaken by the public eye
The nurse adjusted her garters as I breathed my first
The doctor grabbed my throat and yelled, "God's consolation prize!"

I belong to the blank generation and
I can take it or leave it each time
I belong to the ______ generation but
I can take it or leave it each time

To hold the t.v. to my lips, the air so packed with cash
then carry it up flights of stairs and drop it in the vacant lot
To lose my train of thought and fall into your arms' tracks
and watch beneath the eyelids every passing dot

I belong to the blank generation and
I can take it or leave it each time
I belong to the ______ generation but
I can take it or leave it each time

I belong to the blank generation and
I can take it or leave it each time
I belong to the ______ generation but
I can take it or leave it each time top

    Ever felt like a soul without a proper face? Ever felt ugly? Unknown?

    With all these images and advertisements trying to mould us into something marketable and generic, its a hard fight to know what to figure out who we really are.

    Can't possibly imagine a song more drenched in pain than this one, nothing happens according to your will, live or die, be born or fall in love, it's all the same s#! T and nothing means s#! T , so please don't cling to life 'cos you were born by accident and your departure won't mean... Well you already know what at this point.
