Tell it

All the kids
In my life
Had their own voice
And weren't afraid
To say what was on their mind
In fact we'd shout from all the high places
"Standing on the rooftops
Everybody scream your heart out!"
Yeah, we'd shout until the night faded to day
And we'd say
"We are We are
The youth of the nation"

Each and every one of us
Is different
Unique and special
We're individuals
Capable of anything
We set our minds to
From the grand master schemes
To the little things like
"I can ride my bike with no handlebars
No handlebars
No handlebars"

We're out to disprove their fact
That "In the end
It doesn't even matter"
And while we fight
We struggle
"We give it all"
But still...

We need some support
Someone to lean on
If it all falls down
"Promise me you will be there
Until the red light will change"
At least
At the very least
The bare minimum
But can you even give me that?
Or will you hold out
Wait to see the fallout
But by then
I'm out of air
Or would you care?

Yeah, we're imperfect,
But don't you dare say we're worthless
Cause I know for a fact
When these lives collide
A new idea comes to life
And breathe tomorrow
Another day
To say
How much we appreciate
The little things
No one else can see
But we
We know better
Cause we're there

"I'm not okay"
And that's fine because
This life isn't perfect by design
