  • All this noise of rock and roll
    Feels a lot like we're ready to fold
    Feels a lot like we've lost the goal
    Lost our minds and lost the soul of a nation

    A couple lost generations
    We're the ones lost and losing patience
    I'm still looking for a correlation
    Between what to say and how you roll

    Spit it out
    Yeah, spit it out

    Say it like you mean it
    Say it like you mean it
    Say it like you mean it
    But I still don't believe it

    Oh my soul, wonder where'd you go?
    It never did feel like my control
    I never could fit in microphones
    I never could fit in stop and stand ovations

    Give me the songs of the nation
    'Cause it feels like law lacks motivation
    See, I'm still looking for a correlation
    Between what you say and how you roll

    Spit it out
    Like you mean it

    Say it like you mean it
    Say it like you mean it
    Say it like you mean it
    But I don't believe it

    Spit it out
    Like you mean it
    Spit it out
    Like you mean it, yeah
    Spit it out
    Like you mean it
    Spit it out, yeah yeah

    Give me the songs of motion
    Give me the songs of motion
    Give me the songs of motion
    Give me the songs of motion
    Give me the songs of motion
    'Cause it's a lost generation
    I'm still looking for a correlation
    But I still don't believe it

    Say it like you mean it
    Say it like you mean it
    Say it like you mean it
    But I still don't believe it

    Say it like you mean it
    Say it like you mean it
    Say it like you mean it
    But I still don't believe it (ah)
