Punk:
You declared you would be three inches taller
You only became what we made you.
Thought you were chasing a destiny calling
You only earned what we gave you.
You fell and cried as our people were starving,
Now you know that we blame you.
You tried to walk on the trail we were carving,
Now you know that we framed you.

G.f.:
Im the guy in the sky
Flying high flashing eyes
No surprise I told lies
Im the punk in the gutter
Im the new president
But I grew and I bent
Don't you know? don't it show?
Im the punk with the stutter.
My my my my my mmmm my my my.

Ggggg-g-g-g-g generation.

Punk:
We tried to speak between lines of oration
You could only repeat what we told you.
Your axe belongs to a dying nation,
They don't know that we own you.
Youre watching movies trying to find the feelers,
You only see what we show you.
Were the slaves of the phony leaders
Breathe the air we have blown you.

G.f.:
Im the guy etc.

I have to be careful not to preach
I can't pretend that I can teach,
And yet Ive lived your future out
By pounding stages like a clown.
And on the dance floor broken glass,
The bloody faces slowly pass,
The broken seats in empty rows,
It all belongs to me you know.

Punk:
You declared etc.
