Lost In Their Wake

It's not even something we talk about
Not in a deep sense
And it's something we can't seem to figure out
Almost every day we prove this

And when they're hanging around
you say, they are lazy
and when they look your way
they think that you're the one whose crazy
with every message you send
you tell them you can't comprehend
what they're about

It's the fly in the ointment
no one wants to get it out
And if we keep up this way
it's going to bring us all down

And when they're hanging around
you say, they are lazy
those are the words that you say
And if you think we can do without them
this future generation
then you'd better think again, y'know?

It's not like this is something new...
this is on every generation
replace the old with the new
to make a better nation

And when they disagree with you
then you won't listen
can't you see something new?
when the light of the day
hits you in the face again
can't you just make that change?

you say, they are lazy
and when they look your way
they know - you are crazy
and if you get in their way
you're such an easy end around
you'll be lost in their wake

If you fail to embrace them
you'll just get lost in their wake
And that would be a mistake
to make a better union
we have to find a way
to get along.
