The Next Chapter (song lyrics in a punk style)

by CJ Maleney   Aug 3, 2019


You can not put us in a box.
We don't belong in your pigeon slots.
We are a generation born to be free
Not tied and bound by bureaucracy.

We were born to run and roam,
To rest our heads where we feel home.
Not bound by your indignation.
But a generation to shape a nation.

When you look at us you may despair.
But do you realise that we don't care.
For we are free beyond your disdain.
And this earth is our so we stake our claim.

You lost the dreams you once desired.
So be thankful of the kids you sired.
And when you rot on your death bed.
Know that we are choosing life instead.

    Bruce Springsteen seemed to be singing this one to me, Craig. Great stuff.

    All the best as ever,

      Thanks Ben.

      sorry I've not be active much of late. Just finding it a little difficult to get in the zone at the moment.

      Writing something like this is easy as it has a subject matter and is only required to be what it is. Writing on a personal level is proving something of a challenge at the moment.

      Ive always said if it does not flow naturally then it becomes work and not enjoyable. So I won't write it, this is where I seem to be at right now. I'm sure the dam will break at some point and some sort of inspiration will come but at the moment, I write of the mundane.

      regards as always

      Craig

    This could so be a punk song.... Sadly as technology progresses and we are corralled by bureaucracy so does the freedom and privacy of the human species decline. I feel very blessed to have grown up in a time when we were able to run around wild and free, make mistakes and learn from them and think for ourselves. If humanity keeps going the way it is we will be left nothing more than a species of clones.

      hiya.

      it is actually a song it was written for the band my son sings (if you could call it singing) with.

      I've written a couple for them and they've nicked a couple of my poems too
