Generation Y

Trans by:  Mark Cheney

Chorus
   G                               Bm
     Generation Y with a jaundiced eye, 


     I don't know what I'm doing here,

   Em
     Motivate and make us grow, 

   G        D                G
     Let it go and watch us die,

                                 Bm
     Generation Y with a wounded eye

   Em          G     D


   G
     In a post-modern shed on the edge of town 

          Bm
     The workforce rallies with a weary frown

   Em
     All they want to do is burn it down 

   C                   D
     Sick of this and week to payday,

   G
     Taking orders from a sacred cow 

   Bm
     A revolution with an empty round,

   Em
     Jesus Christ wouldn't draw a crowd, 

   C                 D
     I slept like a pig through Mayday.
(Chorus)
   G     Em     D
   G
     This world makes me feel undressed, 

   Bm
     Encourages me to get depressed,

   Em
     Drugs me up until I'm powerless, 

   C                         D
     Steals the wheel I was holding onto,

   G
     Offers something that I can't resist 

   Bm
     Between a clenched fist and a kiss

   Em
     Like a smokescreen in the mist 

   C                     D
     Three cheers 'cause I belong to...
(Chorus)
   G                           Bm
     Generation Y with a lazy eye.

   Em               D                G
     Ask Generation Y, you'll get no reply.

   G          Bm          Em        G     D   (repeat, fade)
