The world gets run by political thugs who think they know it all
They stuff around with nuclear too powerful for us all
They fill the air with chemicals to keep their families fed
We were born innocent, but we were born Generation X.
What's the future hold for the people of tomorrow?
Do we keep dreaming, thinking it's going to be okay?
We've got to something before it's too late
Our house gets run by TV, hope our brains don't rot
They fill our shops with cigarettes
And hope that we don't choke
They live their lives, their time is up
They don't care what they do
We were born innocent
But we were born Generation X.
