6. THE SELFISH GENERATION
(© 2013 e.a.j. burrows, APRA/AMCOS)

Monday, tomorrow, back to, sorrow
Faces, rather not see, places, rather not be

Last night, met someone, got down, had some fun
Suddenly, lights come on, it's her old man, with a gun

Some times I lose my head
Don't care what might be said
Good times to be had
Gonna live my life, before I -fore I -fore I am dead

Went down, see the boys, jammin, making noise
Let loose, lightning hands, too much, blew the amps

Some times I lose my head
Don't care what might be said
Good times to be had
Gonna live my life, before I -fore I -fore I am dead


And when I see these words all written down
I feel like a selfish clown
For in my word there is only me
Me, me, me, me, me, me, me

But this was how I was brought up
It's not my fault if I cannot stop
The selfish generation can't you see
We are just products of our society

Live for Today (That's what they told us)
Forget about Tomorrow (Work hard play hard)
Live for Today (Good time not a long time baby)
Forget about Tomorrow (Fuck em ALL!)

Just Do It (Thank you NIKE)
Just Do It (Forget about you're children)
Just Do It (Forget about the consequences)
Just Do It, Do It, Do It

The Selfish Generation
The Selfish Generation (We are the)
Selfish Generation
The Selfish Generation (We are the)
Selfish Generation
The Selfish Gener-a-a-a-a-a-a-tion
