lyrics

Verse 1:
Seems like it’s a different day, seems like it’s a different time,
Reason has gone astray, and the reasons don’t seem to rhyme.
They traded in their boots and braces for a gold smile and a gun,
It’s a war, a losing battle that just can’t be won…

Chorus:
Gangster Generation! Gangster Generation! Gangster Generation!
No, it’s not for me!

Verse 2:
Has our history lost it it’s place? Has it all been left behind?
When working eight to tens, seems like such a crime.
They traded in their boots and braces for fast cash and easy flow,
This gone wrong mentality, we know it’s got to go.

Chorus:
Gangster Generation! Gangster Generation! Gangster Generation!
No, you don’t speak for me!

Verse 3:
Have our Warriors of the Working Class become lost faded drones?
Too much Bugsy Siegel? Too much Al Capone?
They traded in their boots and braces for a vision that I just can’t see,
Whatever they’re representing, it misrepresents me!


Chorus:
Gangster Generation! Gangster Generation! Gangster Generation!
No, it’s not for me!

Gangster Generation!
Gangster Generation!
Gangster Generation!
Gangster Generation!
