Thrown into life, cold and inept
Afraid to follow in my father’s footsteps
You’re overeducated, under qualified, and scared
You gotta pull your weight, so put this on your fucking resume
They said, “Just follow your dreams, but don’t forget that you’ve got to make ends meet.”
A whole generation that won’t amount to anything
But I’m too young to die
I don’t want to work a 9 to 5
I won’t have my soul sucked out from the inside
Wasting away, what am I doing here?
I don’t want to be like them, so I guess I’m just a fuck up
I’ll never be like them, so I might as well give up.
