about

This one is about cliché prototypes of our generation.

lyrics

East to the west to the north to the south
you are the best according to your mouth.
But we infest and we'll finally arouse,
this is a test: elephant versus mouse!
We express just what we feel,
not a big poetic deal,
and your words may appear stronger,
but at least we're no phrasemongers!

Chorus:
Why you wanna talk about our generation,
what you wanna state about it is none-
sense. So what you say is just some empty phrases!
Whatchu whatchu wanna say?
You're the stereotype of our generation,
what you wanna state about it is none-
sense. So what you wanna tell us about
our generation?

Why do you look like you're down with the street?
Why do you always have Nikes on your feet?
Why you're trying to 2-step on every beat?
And why do you just listen to “the classics” on repeat?

We're exploring, cuz it's boring, to hear snoring every day.
Not conform with this norm of brainless worms waiting to pray!
Clear tradition with a vision, no suspicion, so let's go!
New is not always best, but the rest may not be better though!

Chorus

Listen!
From time to time I start wondering about myself,
when I realize I'm wandering the easy path,
it's five to twelve
to step back from a routine that ruins the dive
I wanna live, to get and give not such a stiff life.
So the reason why I criticize to swim with the stream
or to lead people acting like some sheep into that steam
of feeling better than the rest, if they're part of the team,
is that I think it doesn't help your mind to keep keen.
It's not important to be studied or to form the elite,
cuz in fact abnormal flight to the top just causes greed
for power, and that's something to go sour!
But if it's your goal, go spit from the highest tower!

Chorus

Clear tradition with a vision, no suspicion, so let's go!
New's not always best, but the rest will not be better though!
