  • Some of them come now
    Some of them are running
    Some of them are looking for fun
    Some of them are looking for a way out of confusion
    Some of them don't know what to be
    Some of them don't know where to go
    Some of them just got instincts that something's missing from the show
    Some don't fit society
    Insides are crying low
    Some of them teachers quash the flame before it had a chance to grow
    Some of them embers do glow
    Them charcoal, hushed and low
    Some of them come with the hunger suppressed, not fed
    Them feel a death blow

    Young man, control in your hand
    Slam your fist on the table and make your demand
    Take a stand
    Fan a fire for the flame of the youth
    Got the freedom to choose
    Better make the right move
    Young man, the power's in your hand
    Slam your fist on the table and make your demand
    You better make the right move

    Youth is the engine of the world
    Youth is the engine of the world

    Storm the halls of vanity
    Focus your energy
    Into a laser beam
    Streaming shattered light
    Unites to pierce between the seams
    And it seems
    The world open peering

    The children see
    Rapid fire for your mind
    Half the truth is just a lie
    They rub me the wrong way
    They say their way or fall behind

    Seventeen disconnect left out
    The concept as to why
    There's a spiritual emptiness
    So the youth them get vexed
    Skip class and get wrecked
    Feel with music and cigarettes
    To fill the hole in their chest!

    Young man, control in your hand
    Slam your fist on the table
    And make your demand
    Take a stand

    Fan the fire for the flame of the youth
    Got the freedom to choose
    You better make the right move

    Young man, the power's in your hand
    Slam your fist on the table
    And make your demand
    You better make the right move

    You got the freedom to choose
    You better make the right move
    You got the freedom to choose

    Young man, control in your hand
    Slam your fist on the table
    And make your demand
    Take a stand

    Fan the fire for the flame of the youth
    Got the freedom to choose
    You better make the right move

    Young man, the power's in your hand
    Slam your fist on the table
    And make your demand
    You better make the right move

    Youth is the engine of the world
    Youth is the engine of the world
    Youth is the engine of the world
    Youth is the engine of the world
    Youth is the engine of the world Writer/s: JOSHUA WERNER, MATTHEW MILLER
