Youth Of The Nation

#1
Last day of the rest of my life
I wish I would've known
Cause I didn't kiss my mama goodbye

I didn't tell her that I loved her and how much I care
Or thank my pops for all the talks
And all the wisdom he shared

Unaware, I just did what I always do
Everyday, the same routine
Before I skate off to school

But who knew that this day wasn't like the rest
Instead of taking a test
I took two to the chest

Call me blind, but I didn't see it coming
Everybody was running
But I couldn't hear nothing

Except gun blasts, it happened so fast
I don't really know this kid
Even though I sit by him in class

Maybe this kid was reaching out for love
Or maybe for a moment
He forgot who he was
Or maybe this kid just wanted to be hugged
Whatever it was
I know it's because

[chorus:]
We are, We are, the youth of the nation

Little Suzy, she was only twelve
She was given the world
With every chance to excel

Hang with the boys and hear the stories they tell
She might act kind of proud
But no respect for herself

She finds love in all the wrong places
The same situations
Just different faces

Changed up her pace since her daddy left her
Too bad he never told her
She deserved much better

Johnny boy always played the fool
He broke all the rules
So you would think he was cool

He was never really one of the guys
No matter how hard he tried
Often thought of suicide

It's kind of hard when you ain't got no friends
He put his life to an end
They might remember him then

You cross the line and there's no turning back
Told the world how he felt
With the sound of a gat

[chorus]

Who's to blame for the lives that tragedies claim
No matter what you say
It don't take away the pain

That I feel inside, I'm tired of all the lies
Don't nobody know why
It's the blind leading the blind

I guess that's the way the story goes
Will it ever make sense
Somebody's got to know

There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more to everything
I thought exists

:mad: :mad: :mad:

im not jewish, im not muslim, im not christian, im nothing... (my moms a child psycholigist)really.. any way .. I just dont get it . rock was once "the devils dance music" "satanic" NOW ITS THE RIGHT WINGS FOURM.. Ive already had this arguement about creed with the boys, help me out.. is it the christ thing or is it that it rocks.... even if it rocks why do they have to push christ.. and dont say they dont, I saw them in concert.. they fucking preached for all of us yet to "find him". and to be saved.. I mean come on>

I know all of you will hate me for saying this.....

what a great song. That song reminds me of the old times, where i used to just scream the lyrics of a song as it played. Is one of the best songs that anyone is playing right now.
