Rhetorical Question

We live
In a veritable teenage wasteland
We stand
As antithesis to efficiency

Undeniable
With our bracelets and our wrist bands
Unreliable
We don't do responsibility

Are we far gone, the lost generation?
Destined to destroy all known nations?
Are we?
(Are we? Are we?)

Are we the inception of degradation?
Destined to end all in decimation?
Are we?
(Are we? Are we?)

We preach
Obscene and vulgar nature
We use
Many lies to hide our true identities

We teach
Precisely perverse nomenclature
The tools
Of self-hate and broken codependency

Are we far gone, the lost generation?
Destined to destroy all known nations?
Are we?
(Are we? Are we?)

Are we the inception of degradation?
Destined to end all in decimation?
Are we?
(Are we? Are we?)

Are we…?

You question, you ponder
Your purpose daily
And I wouldn't be you
Wouldn't be
If you paid me

You question, you wonder
Your reasons nightly
So you've no room left
No room left
To slight me

You question, you query
Your reasons for existing
And there is no hope
There's no hope
Left in wishing

You question, you worry
About your time and your life but
You're seeping out
Leaking out
Your lifeblood

You question, you ponder
Your purpose daily

And I wouldn't be you…

Wouldn't be
If you paid me!

Are we far gone, the lost generation?
Destined to destroy all known nations?
Are we?
(Are we? Are we?)

Are we the inception of degradation?
Destined to end all in decimation?
Are we?
(Are we? Are we?)

Are we…?
Are we…?
Are we…?
Well, aren't we?
