The Lyrics

Old farts think we are losers, twats (Talking 'bout X generation)
They think we are pampered brats (Talking 'bout X generation)
We are cold and cynical (Talking 'bout X generation)
We've been cheated and seen it all (Talking 'bout X generation)

This is X generation!
This is X generation, baby!

We've been screwed by GOP (Talking 'bout X generation)
Our values are from MTV (Talking 'bout X generation)
We don't trust the Democrats (Talking 'bout X generation)
Politicians are all crooked rats (Talking 'bout X generation)

This is X generation!
This is X generation, baby!

We've seen de-industrialization (Talking 'bout X generation)
We've seen brazilification (Talking 'bout X generation)
We have felt the unemployment (Talking 'bout X generation)
We've held McJobs and live on rent (Talking 'bout X generation)

This is X generation!
This is X generation, baby!

Our jobs have escaped to China (Talking 'bout X generation)
Old farts claim that we are whiners (Talking 'bout X generation)
Old farts claim our minds are wretched (Talking 'bout X generation)
Boomer envy ain't far fetched (Talking 'bout X generation)

This is X generation!
This is X generation, baby!

We believe in ├╝berkarma (Talking 'bout X generation)
Safest jobs are found in Army (Talking 'bout X generation)
We are tired of all those lies (Talking 'bout X generation)
We get kicks when celebrity dies (Talking 'bout X generation)

This is X generation!
This is X generation, baby!

We are over-educated (Talking 'bout X generation)
Yet the careers are no more slated (Talking 'bout X generation)
Boomers had it oh so easy (Talking 'bout X generation)
Towards us they are now sleazy (Talking 'bout X generation)

This is X generation!
This is X generation, baby!

We no more believe in future (Talking 'bout X generation)
Dim and gloomy is our culture (Talking 'bout X generation)
World is not just black and white (Talking 'bout X generation)
Red and crome are too at sight (Talking 'bout X generation)

This is X generation!
This is X generation, baby!

We no more practise religions (Talking 'bout X generation)
We don't believe in institutions (Talking 'bout X generation)
Post-modern is our buzzword (Talking 'bout X generation)
Life we've grown already bored (Talking 'bout X generation)

This is X generation!
This is X generation, baby!

If you think what this song is 'bout (Talking 'bout X generation)
This world is sick, we want get out (Talking 'bout X generation)
We have no hope, no future too (Talking 'bout X generation)
No use to rant, just time to do (Talking 'bout X generation)

This is X generation!
This is X generation, baby!
