Track Name: Millennial
Born in transition
Called to contrition
Back blast of the baby boom
Changeling children, harbingers of doom

9/11, Columbine
Black lives matter, Occupy
Neutral pronouns, ardent lives

My g-g-generation
Bound for d-d-damnation
Trapped in a world we did not design
Underpaid, yet much maligned

Genderqueer and gentrified
Student debt and suicide
Got no cash but lots of pride

Why did you plant us here
In parched soil, where no light can pierce
You tear up our roots, you feed us only hate
Act surprised we don’t grow tall and straight

People try to put us down
We’re already on the ground
Kick us while we lie around

Why don’t you all fade away?
Don’t try n’ tweet what we all say
Or just maybe raise our pay?
