"Lazy Generation" as written by and Travis John Allen....
We are the lazy generation no more standing out in line
We are the lazy generation so good at wasting our time

We are the lazy generation
We are the lazy generation
We are the lazy generation now

Stand up and shout we won't be there for you
Stand up and shout we won't be there for you

We are the lazy generation they call us social mutations why
You can just drop dead and die
Nothing we do ever seems to matter just like shit on a silver platter shines
Yeah you know just where we stand

    General CommentThe lyrics to this song always struck me as tongue-in-cheek. I think it's talking about how older generations always seem to feel that society has degenerated from what it was in the past. The "lazy generation" sounds like today's youth as imagined by ignorant older people.

    General CommentWhat do they mean by "we won't be there for you!"? I understand that the song is about rebelling and living up to the older generations criticisms only to spite and defy them.

    "We are the lazy generation"
    "So good at wasting are time"

    Are they being ironic? Or are they genuinely proud of being lazy and wasting time?

    "You can just drop dead and die"

    Who old people?

    "Nothing we do ever seem to matter"

    There is no pleasing the older generation?

    "just like shit on a silver platter shines..."
    "Yeah you know just where we stand"

    We are freeloaders and we don't give a fuck! You know what we are, live with it!

    "Stand up and shout!"
    "We won't be there for you!"

    Yell all you want! Stand up! Scream! We won't listen because we don't care! "WE WON'T BE THERE FOR YOU!"

    Best way I can interpret it. Any thoughts?

    General CommentThis song is pretty deep. I'm not sure what it means but it RAWKS lol! Actually this is the worst song ever. How it made it on the burnout soundtrack is beyond me.
