The Kids Are Coming

Album: The Kids Are Coming (2019)
  • No one wants to listen to the kids these days, yeah
    The fibs these days, yeah
    They say that we're all the same
    But they're the ones to blame
    Speaking of the young as if we killed someone
    But we don't need your guns
    We're all too busy on the run
    Tryna be someone

    The kids are comin'
    The kids are gunnin'
    The kids are runnin'
    The kids are comin'
    The kids are comin'
    The kids are gunnin'
    The kids are runnin'
    The kids are comin' for you

    No one seems to understand the kids these days
    And why we live this way
    We got to clean up the mess you've made
    Still you don't wanna change
    You create the law but can't control our thoughts
    And no, we won't be bought
    We don't just protest for the fun
    We're here to get it done

    The kids are comin'
    The kids are gunnin'
    The kids are runnin'
    The kids are comin'
    The kids are comin'
    The kids are gunnin'
    The kids are runnin'
    The kids are comin' for you

    Now you've gone and done it and we locked you in the basement
    Marching through the streets is not the only way to change things
    Now you've gone and done it and we locked you in the basement
    Marching through the streets is not the only way to change things

    This never would've happened when I was a boy
    You kids these days and your millennium items
    And your card games
    And your loud music
    And your hula hoops
    And your hopscotch
    And your dungarees
    And your lollipops
    And your Sony Playstations and your

    The kids are comin'
    The kids are gunnin'
    The kids are runnin'
    The kids are comin'
    The kids are comin' for you Writer/s: Toni Watson
