Given a label, given a name, given a number.
Given things. Endlessly.
I need so much and I need it now
Feed me drugs to control my overstimulated brain
Catch my attention before I lose it
Turn the boring into the Hollywood
Overcompensate your total lack of substance
with glitter, celebrities, fancy cars, sex, drugs
Things I’ll never have, never experience
But make me want it. Make me think I need it.
Pump music into my head all day long
Give me all new state-of-the-art noise canceling headphones
So I can drown you out, cut you off
Attempt to separate myself from how you see, how you use, my generation
We’ve fallen behind in so many ways
You tell us we’re damaged in so many ways
You never let us forget that we have more than you ever had
But we don’t appreciate it, take it for granted
We’re troubled, we’re angsty, we’re angry
But don’t worry, there’s drugs for that
There’s rehab for us
There’s anti-stress creams, Kabbalah, MTV.
Maybe, just maybe
We cut ourselves off because we can’t stand the noise anymore
We’ve figured out how used we are
You wanna sell me something?
Bottle up some sincerity.
Maybe we need so much because our world is so empty.
