lyrics

dear mom and dad
i hope you're glad
you paid for me to study theatre
are you impressed with how much shakespeare i can quote?
and no i still can't change a tire
but i was grateful to be required
to read every word that chekov ever wrote

so let's take a bow
all that i know how
is to lie like an actor
and fake through a disaster

<chorus>

we are a generation lost in space
i hope we're not a hopeless case
no matter what the papers say
we are a revolution biding time
waiting till the time is right
but i know we can ignite

</chorus>

there was a time
i was inclined
to see myself as something special
i was pretty sure that i would make a change
but my songs of revolution
end in fade outs and confusion
turns out i never really had that much to say

so let's join the march
and don't take to heart
when they tell you it's useless
they just wish that they could do this

<chorus>

to all my friends
i can't pretend
that i have always been the best one
i know i have been a ghost from time to time
i won't make up some excuse
consider this my iou
i've got your backs i know that you've always had mine

and if looking back
all i ever had
are the people that surround me
i'll be grateful you all found me

<chorus>
