About the way, Generation-Y hasn't bothered to oppose oppression, the way Generation-X did.

Generation-X has been replaced now
By Generation-Sell-Out,
As today's youth believe all
the lies they're taught
And never think to doubt.

Yes Generation-Sell-Out has
Replaced all the rebels of old,
They embrace all the lies they're taught
And never realise they've sold their souls.

They've sold their souls to devils
Far worse than any in Hell,
Politically correct, ‘right thinking' devils
Who always have more lies to tell.

But Generation-Sell-Out has
Forgotten how to ask questions,
They blindly believe whatever they're told
Unthinkingly accepting evil suggestions.

Generation-Sell-Out has forgotten how
to answer back
And they've forgotten how to fight,
And no matter how wrong ‘right thinking' is
They blindly accept it as being right.

Generation-Sell-Out will listen to every lie
They unthinkingly believe whatever they're told,
It's almost as though they've become puppets
Who need someone else to be in control.
