Generation X


We are the Generation X working hard or trying our best

to keep it real with debts and everything

Living our lives from day-to-day, hoping a chance will come our way,

but most of us know we haven’t a hope to win

We’re Generation X, We’re Generation X, We’re Generation X, We’re Generation X


We are the Generation X, cos Generation W failed the test

And sold out Generation V who won the war

State-run services, who needed them? W chose the Battle of the Yen

And took their chance with the Neo-liberal Whore

Generation W, Generation X, Generation Y is coming next


We’re the Generation X they say, but Generation Y is growing today

Why no money, why no decent jobs

“Socialism’s dead, hurray!” they said, but now our generation is paying instead

And people are dying for a slice of bread…… or God


Generation X, living the Lie, Generation X becomes Generation Y

Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?

Aaah, Aaah Aaah, Aaah, Aaah Aaah, Aaah, Aaah Aaah, Aaah, Aaah Aaah

Why? Why? Why? Why?


We’re the Generation X turned Y, will little Generation Z ask us why

We didn’t see what lay behind the door?

A world controlled by just a few, who do not hear your point of view

A world that’s torn apart by greed and war.

Generation X, Generation X, we’re Generation X, Generation Why??????

Sister


Aaaah


The night is dark and cold under the moon

And I pray that I might leave this place quite soon

Cos I remember what you did I cant forget

And the tears upon my face are still quite wet


I remember what I wanted us to say

So that we might be together still today

But instead you chose the lonely path of lies

Now there’s nothing you could say to change my mind


Aaaah


The sun is slowly breaking through the night

And yesterday is fading in the light

And my tears are dried as I face another day

And the memories of you just fade away


Aaaah

Battle


Sing out the battle’s won. Bring out the wine

Deck of cards on old Arthur’s chest. He’s won this time


Bring out the dancing girls. See how they smile

Victory in a million tears which flow for miles

Is it me? Is it me? Is it me or just someone else?


Drink to a thousand men who vanquished the foe

Such a shame at least half of them will never know.

Is it me? Is it me? Is it me or just someone else?


Cheers to the general calling the roll

Private Mick, number 365, can’t hear his call

Is it me? Is it me? Is it me or just someone else?


Take me from the battlefield. Take me with my gun

Take me from the battlefield now that we have won

Take me from the battlefield. Take me with my gun

Take me from the battlefield. Let me have some fun

Take me from the battlefield. Take me with my gun

Take me from the battlefield and let me have some fun

Take me from the battlefield now that we have won

Take me from the battlefield and lay me with my mum

Who I Really Am


Over and over I’ve thought about our love, and how I seldom showed you I valued you enough

A four leaf clover is very hard to find and I should have told you, you are a special kind

But over and over I’ve been a foolish man, but now I want to show you, who I really am


Over and over I’ve sat here on my own. Over and over staring at my phone

Waiting for a message to say you miss me so. Why did I hurt you? Don’t think I’ll ever know

But over and over I’ve been a silly man, but now I want to show you, who I really am


Over and over, I want to hold you tight and over and over look into your eyes

Over and over, I want to put things right, but over and over, I need you every night


Older not wiser until the day I die. I wish I’d never told you the truth and not a lie

Over and over I want to rewrite the past but over and over I want our future to last

But over and over I’ve been a selfish man, but now I want to show you, who I really am
