The Aimless Generations

Lost without a reason,

I have been sifting my mind looking for a way out

Can't find a seam or pattern to unravel these doubts!

But that's been the roadmap of this life,

Traveling all around with no place to go.

Expecting things to all work out on their own,

Like all others I know.

It's the aimless generation,

Living day by day, never putting our faith

In our heritage, our horizons, or our hearts.....oh, no no!

It can't be our cause if it didn't come from us!

It can't be a thing that we would ever dare trust.

Religion's just a scam, corruption's everywhere,

And this world, it's crumbling into dust.

The only thing that's certain is uncertainty.

The only thing that matters is ourselves.

We didn't make these problems!

It shouldn't fall on us!

 

You say these things enough,

And you can make yourself believe it.

You close your eyes hard enough,

And you can stop yourself from seeing it.

You shut out things you don't want to know,

And pretty soon you're letting go

Of your chance to make a difference!

Of your chance to find yourself!

 

Lost without a reason,

I have been sitting on my mind looking for a way out.

Can't find a seam or pattern to unravel these doubts!

But that's been the roadmap of this life,

Traveling all around with no place to go.

Expecting things to all work out on their own!

It's the aimless generation,

Living day by day, never putting our faith

In our heritage, our horizons, or our hearts!

It can't be our cause if it didn't come from us!

It can't be a thing that we would ever dare trust!

Religion's just a scam, corruption's everywhere,

And this world, it's crumbling into dust.
