Youth Of The Nation

текст песни P.O.D

Last day of the rest of my life
I wish I would've known, cause I'd have kissed my mama goodbye

I didn't tell her that I loved her, how much I cared
Or thank my pops for all the talks and all the wisdom he shared

Unaware, I just did what I always do
Everyday, the same routine, before I skate off to school

But, who knew that this day wasn't like the rest?
Instead of taking a test, I took two to the chest

Call me blind but I didn't see it coming
Everybody was running, but I couldn't hear nothing

Except, gun blasts it happened so fast
I didn't really know this kid though I sit by him in class

Maybe this kid was reaching out for love
Or maybe for a moment he forgot who he was
Or maybe this kid just wanted to be hugged
Whatever it was, I know it's because

We are, We are, the youth of the nation
We are, We are, the youth of the nation
We are, We are, the youth of the nation
We are, We are, the youth of the nation

Little Suzy, she was only twelve
She was given the world with every chance to excel

Hang with the boys and hear the stories they tell
She might act kind of proud but no respect for herself

She finds love in all the wrong places
The same situations, just different faces

Changed up her pace since her daddy left her
Too bad he never told her she deserved much better

Johnny boy always played the fool
He broke all the rules so you would think he was cool

He was never really one of the guys
No matter how hard he tried often thought of suicide

It's kind of hard when you ain't got no friends
He put his life to an end they might remember him then

You cross the line and there's no turning back
Told the world how he felt with the sound of a gat


Who's to blame for the lives that tragedies claim
No matter what you say it don't take away the pain

That I, feel inside I'm tired of all the lies
Don't nobody know why? It's the blind leading the blind

I guess that's the way the story goes
Will it ever make sense? Somebody's got to know

There's got to be more to life than this
