Revolution

  • I was alright
    Till they took me off my medication
    Started slagging off my generation
    And I don't know why

    Well, this is a story not long ago
    When the world got divided by what we vote
    We're not so far from World War Three
    I think most the people here might be crazy
    So fresh, the Prince of Polluted Air
    Do you ever feel like your life just isn't fair?
    Well, I'm so poor, I can't even pay attention
    From the bottom of my heart, can't get no redemption

    I was alright
    Till they took me off my medication
    Started slagging off my generation
    And I don't know why
    And now all night
    Sitting talking 'bout a revolution
    C-c-coughing up the po-pollution
    And I can't breathe right

    Everyday
    Standing in the rain with a blank expression
    I guess this is a lesson in lessons, I see they're paying attention
    Sixteen and you don't know what to be
    Spend nights out on the street with friends and just get beat
    Well, I guess the rest will be history
    Old folks' votes don't cater for you and me
    A friend in need is a friend indeed
    But a friend selling Zs ain't clever

    I was alright
    Till they took me off my medication
    Started slagging off my generation
    And I don't know why
    And now all night
    Sitting talking 'bout a revolution
    C-c-coughing up the po-pollution
    And I can't breathe right
    And I can't breathe right

    Mind is spinning
    My mind is spinning
    Mind is spinning
    M-m-my mind is spinning

    I was alright
    Till they took me off my medication
    Started slagging off my generation
    And I don't know why
    And now all night
    Sitting talking 'bout a revolution
    C-c-coughing up the po-pollution
    And I can't breathe right

    I was alright
    Till they took me off my medication
    Started slagging off my generation
    And I don't know why
    And now all night
    Sitting talking 'bout a revolution
    C-c-coughing up the p-pollution
    And I can't breathe right

    And I can't breathe right
    I can't breathe right
    And I can't breathe right
    I can't breathe right
    I can't breathe right
    I can't breathe right
    I can't breathe right
    I can't breathe right
    And I don't know why Writer/s: JORDAN CARDY, NOAH BOOTH, RICHARD ARCHER
