In our world’s degradation
We take for granted all we have
And all that we were given
When was the last time that you looked up
And gazed upon a shopping mall
And said ‘how beautiful?’

So one more time, you hear my voice
We are the youth, you have the choice
So use it wisely

They pave the world in concrete
Soon nothing will be natural
But only artificial
Artificial and commercial
A superficial front for what is wrong
Human parasite

So one more time, you hear my voice
We are the youth, you have the choice
So use it wisely

Where could we have ever gone so wrong?
Nothing’s sacred, nothing’s sacred
We’re burning lands on consumer demands
Nothing’s sacred, nothing’s sacred

So one more time, you hear my voice
We are the youth, you have the choice
So use it wisely

Let’s bring it down now
Please don’t give up

Where could we have ever gone so wrong?
Nothing’s sacred, nothing’s sacred
We’re burning lands on consumer demands
Nothing’s sacred, nothing’s sacred.

    General Commenthaha loser the song goes like this...
    in our world's degradation we take for granted all we have and all that we were given
    when was the last time that you looked up and gazed upon a shopping mall and said 'how beautiful?
    so one more time you hear my voice
    we are the youth
    you have the choice
    so use it wisely
    where could we have ever gone so wrong?
    nothings sacred
    we're burning lands on consumer demands
    nothin's sacred
    they pave the world in concrete
    soon nothing will be natural but only artificial
    artificial and commercial
    a superficial front for what iswrong; human parasite

    and its about how he is saying we are ruining the world with all these damn stores and we are the youth we are the only ones that can stop it but we do nothing cause we dont see the real beauty in things anymore.

    General Commentyea, thats basically it. People are just ruining the envirnment to get money, and build shit we don't need. I also felt we were a parasite, and we are. There's a quote in the Matrix that fits this all well, but I'm to lazy to find it. If you've seen it perhaps you know what I mean.

    General CommentOne of the greatest lyrics I have ever read: "When was the last time that you looked up and gazed upon a shopping mall and said, "How beautiful" "
