We are the generation of a new millennium.
Be proud?
Our title could’ve been better, it sounds pretty corny,
I looked online, no one seems to think that
We’re going to be the ones that save the world
That’s stupid, the truth?
We’re going to completely mess up with our technology.
You think our smartphones are doing us good?
Hah, “we made it.”
It’s garbage, you know?
we only live for money and fame.
That’s the way to go.
Chivalry, being respectful, and real relationships?
That’s all a lie.
Forget about the past.
It’s not easy, but we’re better off trying to.
change the world for the next generation,
that’s something we never tried.
giving up.
that’s how we handle our problems.
work hard
that’s a joke.
we know that
the adults don’t have faith in us
so brush it off and have fun.
All that is pretty much true
if we look at things that way.

 

So let’s flip things around

 

If we look at things that way
all that is pretty much true.
So brush it off and have fun!
The adults don’t have faith in us?
We know that
That’s a joke.
Work hard!
That’s how you handle your problems.
Giving up?
That’s something we never tried.
Change the world for the next generation
it’s not easy, but we’re better off trying to.
Forget about the past.
That’s all a lie.
Chivalry, being respectful, and real relationships?
That’s the way to go!
We only live for money and fame?
It’s garbage, you know?
Hah, we made it!
You think our smartphones are doing us good?
“We’re going to completely mess up with our technology.”
That’s stupid. The truth?
We’re going to be the ones that save the world.
I looked online, no one seems to think that
“Our title could’ve been better, it sounds pretty corny”
Be proud!
We are the generation of a new millennium.
