You look down on
Our Youth today
And say we're


You skip the

The Willing
The Originator
The Believers

The Boy that fails in class
Comes home, puts his emotions
Into guitar, loves dance
Looks into his mothers eyes
And sees broken glass

Listens to heavy music
People don't understand it
They opinion-ate, debate
Whether the person has anger issues...

But he bursts his emotion
In to his music and for once
He feels love.
Like the artist understands him
Lyrics pump through his blood...

You don't understand the screams
The anger from these words
To you they're are never heard
But have you ever listened?
Not listening in the first place
Caused this...

The lyrics are true

The Girl who is covered in tattoos
Has pushed through and through
Her body is her temple
And shes painted the walls

Covering her scars
Created through her youth
Her scars are deep
Created by mans sharpened metal
Not a cry for help

But to breathe for once in her life
The pain on her skin will
Stop the sin of ending it

Pictures of emotion
And the powers to show them
Because if she told you
About her problems,
A cold shoulder is what you would
Have shown her...

The You-th of today is what it explains
Let's brake this word down
I'll show "You" this pain...

You... Are the reasons why they slam the doors...
You want us to be what you never were
A Lawyer?
A Doctor?
A Dentist?


You say these jobs are going to bring
Happiness and Wealth
But sit for a second look deep
Into the eyes did You listen
When the Boy and Girl cried
For help?


You put them on medication
Said Deal with it that's life
This is the reason

The Boy sat in his room
Listening and playing Music
To just get through the day!

And why the girl has painted
Her beautiful curves, the curves you don't
See? Because she's either too skinny
Or she over eats...
There's no winning It's people like this
In life are the reason
Why she picked up the knife.

You... Tell your son and daughter
What do you know about love?

But they saw with their own eyes
When you took the Diploma and the Course
Of how to destroy it going through your divorce


Are not! The words that give...


You... Were the ones telling the Boy and Girl
Educate and learn.

Get your head deep in these
Books and find a purpose

But saying these words living your
Broken Youth is why they feel worthless

Ill say it for them

Sorry for stealing your youth
Sorry for expressing their emotions
Sorry a really good job doesn't mean anything to them, but happiness does
Sorry when age has a meaning because we don't "Understand" Love
Sorry for the anger with passion and rage
Sorry for their broken homes, caused by your morals
Sorry for the advice that you have never spoken

Because the medication is what pull us through?
Heartless and Broken...

Like broken ice
Shattered as it hits the glass
But as we know it melts
And never lasts.

Vapors happen as it hits the sky
New rain is born
But it's the tears of our youth
A silent cry
Silently hitting the roofs

Roofs of a broken home...

So look and listen to the words
Emotion written in every verse
Learn to appreciate
Never look down to whisper, debate

*Never expect what you write
To be any good, because
The fear of not writing stops
You from finding your own voice
