When all you need was a little motivation
They pointed fingers and yelled dead generation
When all you need was a little care
You get nothing but an old white hair bland stare
Have you ever needed an ounce of love
And all you got was a whole lot of fucked
So say your prayers
It's the death of a nation
Say your prayers
For the dead generation
Condescending broad generalizations
Get real old real fast
Just because most hippies and their parents have sold out
Does not mean that you, your children and their kids won't last...
So say your prayers
It's the death of a nation
Say your prayers
For the dead generation
Agressivness is godliness
Combativness is holiness
Destructiveness is faithfullness
Deadliness is devoutness
Praying to a god that they created
And know damn well does not exist...
We find them on their knees

    General CommentOne of the most amazing songs in The Terror State album,and probably one of the most amazing made by Anti-Flag
    This song its about how everyone put "faith" in our new generation kids,always disbelieving them,giving them no hope to believe that they can fight and change the things! Its an cicle that make an alienate society w/alienate kids doing nothing but waste away
    They are the dead generation.

    General Comment1 COMMENT? this is the one good song on the Terror State. i was dissapointed because Terror State was my first a.f. album....but i made the assumption that, like most bands, their music had become weaker as they aged so i brought Mobilize and thats a good album.
