  • When I was a young gun
    I could live without the laws
    I made my mess
    I could live without you all

    If I starve from breathing
    I won't listen to the call
    I made my bed, I'm committed
    I am strong

    They keep saying
    My generation's dead

    Dead, we are helpless
    We have nothing and nothing's wrong
    We're committed, we are hungry
    We are strong

    Dead, we are restless
    We are broken but standing tall
    We're devoted, we are driven
    We are cause

    I don't think that I suffered
    I don't think I've learned at all
    I get right back up and then I take another fall
    My teachers told me something
    They said that I would hit a wall
    And if I keep it up I won't live to tell us all

    They keep saying
    My generation's dead

    Dead, we are helpless
    We have nothing and nothing's wrong
    We're committed, we are hungry
    We are strong

    Dead, we are restless
    We are broken but standing tall
    We're devoted, we are driven
    We are cause

    Talking down to me
    And our generation
    Is this what you want to be?
    A contradiction?

    I don't think that I suffered
    I don't think I've learned at all
    I get right back up and then I take another fall

    Oh yeah
    We are dead
    I am dead
    Oh yeah
    Dead
    My generation's dead

    Dead, we are helpless
    We have nothing and nothing's wrong
    We're committed, we are hungry
    We are strong

    Dead, we are restless
    We are broken but standing tall
    We're devoted, we are driven
    We are cause

    I am dead
    Oh yeah
    We are dead
    Oh, dead
    My generation's
    Oh yeah
    Dead
