MGMT – The Youth lyrics

This is a call of arms to live and love and sleep together
We could flood the streets with love or light or heat whatever
Lock the parents out, cut a rug, twist and shout
Wave your hands
Make it rain
For stars will rise again

The youth is starting to change
Are you starting to change?
Are you?

In a couple of years
Tides have turned from booze to tears
And in spite of the weather
We could learn to make it together

The youth is starting to change
Are you starting to change?
Are you?

The youth

    Learning is not attained by chance. It must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.
    Literacy is not a luxury, it is a right and a responsibility. If our world is to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.
    The best way to predict the future is to create it.
    Now is the accepted time, not tomorrow, not some more convenient season. It is today that our best work can be done and not some future day or future year.

    This song is about love and worldly conflicts in every subtle kind of way. Simple as.
    Its basically saying how no matter what you do in life, make it for the greater good. Make it so there is only a happy ending. "love or light or heat whatever". Happiness lies in simplicity, and understainding one another instead of remprimanding people from the past until today. That's why it asks are you starting to change? To make this world a better place! Its love and peace all the way.
