The Generation Sound Forgot

My Pearl Jam records are burning
because I set them on fire
And all the kids are learning
is how to be better buyers

Listening is dead
our hearing is shot
We are the generation
that sound has forgot

Your Deadhead bumper sticker
and your Misfits patch Clash
And all of your icons
you're worshipping with cash

And so much creativity
has all come to naught
We are the generation
that sound has forgot

They make record sales figures
But no one left makes music
Their endeavor's not so clever
if they're forcing you to choose it
...or lose it

Really we ought
leave them to rot
Song without thought
as sound has forgot...
