lyrics

the hippies all had dreams
but greed was growing hungry and it ate them all
and if i had to wager
this generation is on its own
the baby boomers failed
and the greatest generation
could only beat them back for a decade or so
ambition is an engine
their war machines are ready to go

you had the promise of chance to change things
you failed to see that promise through
so hand it down to the next ones

there's a madness in this world
there's a craziness and cruelty in your neighborhood
and if i had to gamble
maybe we are on our own
it may be that i'm wrong
it may be that you feel fine
as the seas change to the east
you are resolute
in the place that you call home
the truth with stare you straight in the face
and tell you

you had the promise of chance to change things
you failed to see that promise through

when i lose control
automate my soul
i won't mind
i won't mind at all
if the promise of chance is passed on

you are my waiting car
fear that makes me hard
you
you are my waiting car
there in the parking lot
you

and though the promise of chance is over
i'd take another chance with you

when i lose control
automate my soul
i won't mind
i won't mind at all

when corporate drones
data-mine my bones
i hope they hear this on their phones
and hand it down to the next ones
