lyrics

Hey Dad, I think I finally know who I am.
It only took 21 years to finally form a plan
and all my heroes are crashing beneath the weight of my heart
and if the mountain I’m standing on falls I’ll build it up again.

I sat down on the beaches of Yorktown and wrote down a song and it’s
About how I wish that I was alive back in 1776
Because the 21st century is popping pills to distract from its ADD
When all it really needs is a revolution and a good night’s sleep

And when I drift off
A voice rings in my ears
and it says:
Welcome to the summer of your life, kid
The world will cut you open like a knife, kid

There’s something happening here
What it is is entirely clear
all The kids have their hands raised in a fist
They’ve decided it’s high time to start giving a shit
I think its time we
Take arms against apathy
Overrun the boredom on a living spree
Speak every word like it’s a prophecy
Of the coming times when everybody agrees

And when I drift off
A voice rings in my ears
It says:
Welcome to the summer of your life, kid
The world’ll cut you open like a knife, kid
Unless you choose to put up a fight, kid
So smile in defiance and ignite, kid
