Rise Against Lyrics

7. Generation Lost



Getting trampled under boots of progress
Ignore the pleading of the nameless faces
Now with (our back) against the wall
How long till we fall?

Do away with all the underprivileged
Their demographic doesn't fit your image
Turn your (blind eye) when duty calls
How long till we fall?

(In With The New)
And this is something that you can't ignore
(In With The New)
A simple thing worth fighting for
(In With The New)
Cause now they're tearing down our doors
And so she screams out the window,
"I've had it up to here,
So sick and tired of wondering
Where I'll be next year..."

Caring less about the homeless millions
All the petty problems that go with them
Reap the profit that reaps their lives 
And tell me that it's fine

Throw them out and call it relocation
Lower-income-housing quick solution
A Generation Lost!

(In With The New)
And this is something that you can't ignore
(In With The New)
A simple thing worth fighting for
(In With The New)
And now they're tearing down our doors
And so she screams out the window,
"I've had it up to here,
So sick and tired of wondering
Where I'll be next year..."

Now in the whirlwind of my life
Is where you presently reside
Can I pretend you don't exist
Maybe just for ten more minutes?
My heart's been broken into two
And rusted from years of disuse
So will you place upon it your hand
And will you help it beat again?

Now in the whirlwinds of my life
Is where you presently reside.
Can I pretend you don't exist
Maybe just for ten more minutes?
My heart's been broken into two
And rusted from years of disuse
So will you place upon it your hand
And will you help it beat again?

It seems the whole world's turned on me
(Bound and gagged) in the land of the free
Let's talk this over, this game is over
In with the new, out with the old
Hearts of the world have grown so cold
This game is over, let's talk this over
