This Generation

Here’s a song called “This Generation”. I did a lot of vocal work on this one. My Dad plays electric guitars too. The song is about pessimism and it points out all the faults with the world that sometimes we don’t want to admit. But I tried to be very honest in this one while still keeping a really dark tone. Also, this song is my longest song so far coming in at 6 minutes, 8 seconds. Hope you enjoy it!

This Generation – Lyrics and music by Andreas Jahn

We were gifted a mind that we were supposed to use
But we can’t without our hearts
And we all somehow were poisoned with greed and hate
And never end hatred we start
More than half of problems include loud fighting
And in the end nothing will change
There is no reason that we act so violently
Whenever answers are trying to be made

There is no denying that everywhere
The week and poor are crying and some folks don’t care
Our sense of importance is lost in humanity
There’s so much anger that can break our hearts
Disgraceful lies that can tear our world apart
Some things can not be changed
And I weep so much for this generation

They say actions speak much louder than the written word
Well I think they both can make you cry
Action can cause pain that hurts you so very much
The written word hurts on the inside
And many don’t realize that feelings go through the most pain
So we feel bad in our minds
And a combination poisons other people’s lives
Although we say it’s their own fault
Well that is never right

There is no denying that everywhere
The week and poor are crying and some folks don’t care
Our sense of importance is lost in humanity
There’s so much anger that can break our hearts
Disgraceful lies that can tear our world apart
Some things can not be changed
And I weep so much for this generation

When I lay down in bed with my eyes all closed
I wait so long for a dream in my sleep
‘Cause in my dreams I can control everything
Until I wake up and then I weep
I know that in my dreams I’ll do everything
To make my stay there a paradise
But in real life there’s so little you can change
So I’ll just wait for an answer to arise

Go save your life from the world
And it’s cruel injustice
Don’t waste your time being fooled
That the world is perfect
I can’t control how your life
Works and what things happen
Here’s my advice
Save your life

I won’t tell lies to you all
Nothing I’ll say is false
If you deny everything
That I say while I sing
That will be fine
Fine for you
Do whatever you do
I have advice for your life
