“Youth of the Nation” by POD
Last day of the rest of my life I wish I would have known cause i’d have kissed my momma goobye. I didn’t tell her that I loved her or how much 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 wasnt like the rest, instead of takin the test I took two to the chest.
Call me blind but I didn’t see it comin and everybody was runnin but I couldn’t hear nothin, except gun blast, it happened so fast I didn’t really know this kid though I sat by him in class. Maybe this kid was reachin 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 its because
We are We are the youth of the nation (repeat)x4
Little Suzzy 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 kinda proud but no respect for herself. She finds love in all the wrong places the same situations but 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, with the thought of suicide. It’s kinda hard when you ain’t got no friends, he put his life to an end they might remember him then.
You cross a line and there is no turnin back he told the world how he felt with the sound of a gat.
Whos to blame for the life that tragedies claim no matter what you say it won’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 leadin the blind. Guess that’s the way that the story goes, will it ever make sense somebody’s gotta know, there’s gotta be more to life than this, there’s got to be more to everything I thought exists
CHORUS to the end
