'Youth of the nation'

 

Last day of the rest of my life

I wish I would've known

Cause I didn't kiss my mama goodbye

I didn't tell her that I loved her and how much I care

Or thank my pops for all the talks

And all the wisdom he shared

Unaware, I just did what I always do

Everyday, the same routine

Before I skate off to school

But who knew that this day wasn't like the rest

Instead of taking a test

I took two to the chest

 

Call me blind, but I didn't see it coming

Everybody was running

But I couldn't hear nothing

Except gun blasts, it happened so fast

I don't really know this kid

Even though I sit by him in class

Maybe this kid was reaching out for love

Or maybe for a moment

He forgot who he was

Or maybe this kid just wanted to be hugged

Whatever it was

I know it's because

 

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

 

Little Suzy, she was only twelve

She was given the world

With every chance to excel

Hang with the boys and hear the stories they tell

She might act kind of proud

But no respect for herself

She finds love in all the wrong places

The same situations

Just different faces

Changed up her pace since her daddy left her

Too bad he never told her

She deserved much better

 

Johnny boy always played the fool

He broke all the rules

So you would think he was cool

He was never really one of the guys

No matter how hard he tried

Often thought of suicide

It's kind of hard when you ain't got no friends

He put his life to an end

They might remember him then

You cross the line and there's no turning back

Told the world how he felt

With the sound of a gat

 

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

 

Who's to blame for the lives that tragedies claim

No matter what you say

It don't take away the pain

That I feel inside, I'm tired of all the lies

Don't nobody know why

It's the blind leading the blind

I guess that's the way the story goes

Will it ever make sense

Somebody's got to know

There's got to be more to life than this

There's got to be more to everything

I thought exists

 

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

 

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

We are, We are, the youth of the nation

P.O.D. signifie Payable On Death.
