"Generation" as written by and Richard Michael/deleo Patrick....
They give what they give ya
You get what you get
They take what they're taking
No matter what you said

Or maybe it's just apathy
Or maybe we don't question it

[Chorus]
So helpless
In this mess The fault of all of us, yeah
Contagious complacent kiss goodbye
Generation of fear and whatever

Life in the bull's eye
They won't ignore
Life in the big lie
We won't absolve
Or maybe it's just letargy
Or maybe we should question it

[Chorus]

Generation of fear and whatever Generation of fear and whatever

    General CommentVery powerful song. The meaning is all in the chorus: "Generation of fear and whatever." I think it's about how today's society has been conditioned into living in a state of constant fear and making decisions based on that, kindof like the ideas Michael Moore put forth in Fahrenheit 9/11.

    I like the challenge in this song: "Maybe we should question it."

    General CommentKickass song. It's about how our society fails to think for itself, just lets stuff happen without question. Most of the songs on this cd seem to be based around politics and religion.
