Generation Z

I think that our kids will probably see the end of humanity
As we know it, cause this world’s about to blow it
Will they see what they saw in ancient Rome
The destruction of the home?
Will they see the end of civility?
Cause when morality’s been blurred, procreation seems absurd
And human rights and freedom are just words
That have lost all their meaning
In a world that is bleating like an animal at slaughter
I hope that my daughters never know what it feels like to give up
To know the whole world is corrupt
To realize that they are really on their own
And there’s no one left who cares about the future
Infected cuts don’t need a suture
There’s a feeling that the human race has seen the checkered flag
And the laps that are given are the last ones ever driven
And everyone who’s still living knows that
It’s a shame that the Earth will live on but can’t give birth
To a baby planet where we could start over again
We've been divided, we've been bled
Like a chicken without a head, running frantically amok
Taking but not giving a fuck
History is just an alibi
It’s believing every lie man has ever dared to write
It’s so much easier to see than complex reality
A lifetime full of misery and blight
So we tell our daughter’s and sons that they’re not the final ones
To see this planet as a decent place to live
We use a telescope to give them faith to give them hope
Anything to help them cope with their future
Cause there’s no alternative
Kings and queens ruled the land
There’s more and more lines drawn in the sand
Pawns are crooks castles are rooks
It’s too bad the good books
Written for the sub-classes to introduce morality
Had nothing to do with reality
But then again who would have ever read them
We read the Par Quran for lunch
Eat Old Testaments for a snack
And read the Lulla-bible before bed
There’s no more points of view
(It’s sad I’m gonna see)
When your only thought is food
The bible has been replaced with a survival guide
(The end of history)
That uses perishables instead of parables
Because there’s no stories left to preach
(We don’t wanna be)
There’s no large lessons left to teach anyone
Why bother?
(The Generation Z)
Who are we
Are we the intellects, or the insects?
(We don’t wanna see)
We’re not the ones who will ever know the answer
It’s impossible for us to imagine what is right in front of us
(A species you and me)
I guess that’s what makes us think we’re human
But being human only lets us see a little farther than animals
(The end of history)
Feel depression from spending most of your life working?
(The Generation Z)
Try chemicals
Chemicals make everything better!
(The end of history)
Hate, love, morality
(The Generation Z)
They’re just chemical reactions
[Generation Z! Generation Z!]
Are we just chemically imbalanced ants
On chemically fueled rants?
It really just comes down to sex and power
I bet the last man standing
The last human on this planet
The last person on the earth
Doesn't give a shit
Or have any idea that he or most likely she
Is the last one
The last person on this planet will fuck the dead
And die thinking not about why didn't anyone care
But why her life was so unfair
It’s time, it needs to be said
I’m sorry to be the one to inform you
But man and womankind has unfortunately been pronounced dead
[Generation Z!]
