lyrics

Revolting Destiny

Well they say the youth are revolting in their actions every day
They say the youth are revolting in the words that they dare say
But didn’t you wanna change things, too; back in your ‘prime days’?
I’m just glad to be alive to see your era waste away.

Truant youth run the streets
No escape from the fates they meet
Will it be the pushers and pimps around town
Or the ruthless pigs content to hunt them down

Is it not plain to see,
that something is completely out of place here
and do you truly believe
that ‘mindfulness’ means ‘minding your own business’?

The youth today inherit a plastic hovel
They’ll play you like a demographic novel
No longer fit, fit to beg and grovel
They’ll cut your hand, off that saber’s pommel

Is it not plain to see,
that something is completely out of place here?
And if you truly believe
that ‘mindfulness’ means ‘minding your own business,’
then you’ll get just wat kyk jy
and it won’t be bliss, ‘cause it’s not ignorance.
Whole of space and history
unfolds before us, we can’t ignore it, or it
IS OUR DESTINY TO REPEAT

Well they say the youth are revolting in their actions every day
They say the youth are revolting in the words that they dare say
But didn’t you wanna change things, too; back in your ‘prime days’?
I’m just glad to be alive to see this cancer waste away.
