Ode to Gen X…

We are so totally frakked my fellow X-ers, as we kinda sorta always knew we would be…Reality Bites (1994)

The universal legacy of paying for previous generations sins continues to hammer GEN X and apparently will hammer our children and grandchildren as well. Back to my cynicism, it may keep me warm when they turn off the heat to those who make ‘too much’, or whom they deem ‘young enough’ to deal with the cold and carry whatever ‘legacy charge’ they dream up next….

We will always have …well not Paris, but the 7/11 and The Knack anyway, lol:

Cynical?? WHO US?? Gee wonder why! BWAAAAAAHAAAAAAA!!

I got a pothead mama, got a cokehead dad.
I’m an ultramodern version of the American man.
I don’t feel good, but don’t feel bad.
Cause me you see, I’m nuthin
Ain’t no republicrat, no demmican, they ain’t nuthin in between.
I’m sick of people talking about American dreams -that’s all gone.
Ain’t nothin there for me cause me you see I’m nuthin.
I ain’t left, I ain’t right.
People say I’m wrong before I was born.
It was all gone.
Don’t even make sense that I wrote this song.
Cause me you see I’m nuthin, I’m nuthin…
Don’t want no big TV or no flashy garage, never would cut it in no corponate job.
People see me coming – they say look at that slob cause me you see

I’m nuthin, I’m nuthin…….
