  • Who needs the young?
    The revelation of their faces and their hair
    When all we have are withered traces of the faces we once were
    And suffocation in the dirty, fatal air
    Who needs the young bodies floating in the sun?

    Who needs the young?
    The celebration of the races that they've have won
    The sado-masochistic things they've never done, disgusting
    And all the places that we never will have gone
    Who needs the young bodies floating in the sun?

    Who needs the young?

    My eyes just aren't what they were
    My eyes just aren't what they were
    My eyes just aren't what they were
    Is there anyone left who can see?
    Blind him!

    My lips just aren't what they were
    My lips just aren't what they were
    My lips just aren't what they were
    Is there anyone left who can kiss?
    Spit on him!

    My mind just isn't what it was
    My mind just isn't what it was
    My mind just isn't what it was
    Is there anyone left who can dream?
    Wake him!

    My legs just aren't what they were
    My legs just aren't what they were
    My legs just aren't what they were
    Is there anyone left who can dance?
    Cripple him!

    My voice just isn't what it was
    My voice just isn't what it was
    My voice just isn't what it was
    Is there anyone left who can sing?
    Silence him!

    My sex just isn't what is was
    My sex just isn't what is was
    My sex just isn't what is was
    Is there anyone left who can fuck?
    Screw them!

    Who needs the young?
    The perfect star of flesh that never has to cry
    Who needs the filthy moaning passed from thigh to thigh?
    Who needs the self-appointed prophets waving banners in the bloodshot sky

    Who needs the young when we're spending all the rest of our wonderful lives learning to die! Writer/s: JAMES RICHARD STEINMAN
