"Department Of Youth" as written by Robert A. Ezrin, Alice Cooper and Dick Wagner....
We're in trouble all the time
You read about us all in the papers
We walk around and bump into walls
A blind delegation, yeah

And we ain't afraid of high power
We're bullet proof
And we've never heard of Eisenhower
Missile power, justice or truth

We're the department of youth
Your new department of youth
We're the department of youth
Just me and youth

We talk about this whole stupid world
And still come out laughing
We never make any sense
But hell that never mattered

But we'll make it through our blackest hour
We're living proof
And we've never heard of Billy Sunday
Damon Runyon, manners or couth

We're the department of youth
Your new department of youth
We're the department of youth
Just me and youth

We're the department of youth
The new department of youth
We're the department of youth
The new department of youth

We're the department of youth
We've got the power
We're the department of youth
We've got the power

    General CommentThe best part of this song that is not here on the lyrics.. at the end when the song is dying down, Alice says "We got the power! And who gave it to ya?" The backup singers say "Donny Osmond!"

    General CommentAlice cooper is great. I think the meaning of this song is self-defined. Its about the rebelious youth of today and the anarchy of it all

    General CommentAt this point, Steven is having one of those dreams where you're not in the shitty (no pun intended) situation that you're in when you wake up. He wakes up and realizes he's been on the toilet all night pooping.
