New Generation lyrics

People raise your voices, don't get caught in that mess

Like a fly in a spider's web, is it true more is less

Herded like a happy flock to the big T.V. slaughter

"Why don't you break that leash," said the heifer to the sheep



It's a new generation

It's a hallucination

It's a mystic vibration

It's just intimidation

It's the will of the people

It's the church with the steeple

It's the sacred devotion

To an unhealthy notion



People raise your voices, don't get into that trap

If your friends and your neighbors push

Why don't you push them back

Don't you think the time has come

To stand up and be heard

Ain't no use to try and wait

For the magic word



It's a new generation

It's an infatuation

It's a beautiful body

Both erotic and deadly

It's the fear of the future

It's just surgeons and sutures

It's a spandex obsession

It's a lasting impression



Do you feel the power

Do you feel the power

Baptized in electronic water

Prodigal sons and beautiful daughters

With smiles and bows and rosy cheeks

And the righteous bath

Death to the freaks

Do you feel the power

Do you feel the power

From the man whose voice sounds reassuring

Completely firm and so alluring

Like he's lived a thousand times before

And seen the world from shore to shore

With the calmness and tranquility that oozes credibility

With the wisdom and the confidence that seem to scream out common sense

And it makes you feel just like a babe

Daddy holding you tight and safe

Hush babe everything's all right

Daddy's gonna stay with you tonight

Now he's got you by the balls, he can sell you anything at all

From morality to diamond rings to genocide to magazines

From religion to cosmology to the end of a democracy



It's a new generation

It's a divine inspiration

Always ready to follow

Ever willing to swallow

All the doctor's prescriptions

All the mystic inscriptions

It's a spandex obsession

It's a lasting impression

It's the calm meditation

Of a tranquilized nation

It's a hallucination

It's a new generation
