lyrics

Complex bones, formaldehyde
Nicotine cravings curled up inside
Old-fashioned piano rolls
Nothing worse than growing old
I borrowed a nickel to play a tune
Because my friends were leaving soon
Suspicion raised in a gambler’s feast
To dodge a bullet and find the beast
America was falling fast
They said we lost the middle class
I wasn’t sure of the conversation
So I waited outside instead
Interested in the loneliness of drinks
Bought for you by the one you’ll never have

Cause everything you need to know
Is found upon that hollow road
To keep moving along that rocky path
You won’t need a map…you’ll just need some nerve
Oh Generation Y [] [] [] []

The tipping point of melted steel
Chasing down a proper meal
I’ve seen the multicolored mines
That poison lungs and damage eyes
And we tried to fix the environment
But it is a crisis locked inside the strip
Of all our dead presidents…
So we go out at night to feel better about our actions throughout the day
But we still feel so empty inside and so damn commonplace
We can work at jobs we love but we won’t make any money
And I’ve watched so many friends corrupt themselves to pocket some milk & honey
I am terrified by what won’t happen in my life
Will I criminalize everything I once perceived as right?
I am introverted and queer
All in all a lonely fear
Of Generation Y
