​Generations

This song is by The Verve Pipe and appears on the album The Verve Pipe (1999).

Original video
I awoke to a threat that was empty
And a grandstand of I'm not through with you yet
A slamming door becomes my punctuation
And I escape for a thrill ride with my friends
And they agree to be temporary guardians

Man, it's so appreciated
Summer day intoxicated
With those who can relate
Two months, a day, a wakeup

Drink it down, dear brother
Their generation smothers you
And we'll leave no trail to discover
Build a callus sister
They're generation blisters

Another wake-up with the morning hung over
We gonna pack up or waste another killer day
Then our heads exploded, overload when we decide
Hello, we're so out of here
Hitch-hike to Canada with backpacks full of cigarettes and beer

Man, it's so appreciated
Summer day intoxicated
With those who can relate
Two months, a day, a wakeup

Drink it down, dear brother
Their generation smothers you
And we'll leave no trail to discover
Listen up dear father
Your generation bothers me
And I'll leave you to grieve
With my mother
Build a callus sister
They're generation blisters

Now empty your bottles and open the throttles
There's plenty of fighting ahead
Those fists weren't made for resting your head

Shield your eyes, dear mother
From the pain that hovers
'Round the mess of a man you've uncovered
Drink it down, dear brother
Their generation smothers you
And we'll leave no trail to discover
We'll blister
