lyrics

So tell me why you have to be 21 to drink
while most 12 years olds i've met
are more mature than most in their 40s
and they're the one's being irresponsible

and tell me why
they say children are the future
but once we have opinions, you shut us down instantly
while we're just living the way you taught us

well here's a quick lesson for you

So i'll take this line from everyone who said it all before me
cause goddamn, aint it the truth
but if we're fucked up, then who are the ones to blame?
well it aint us.
it's you.

And I'll ask myself before i die, am i happy with the way i lived my life
And when i get older, i won't feel like my life is over because,
age is just a number, age is just a man made number

And when we do grow old, let's try our best and hope that we don't damage the generation after us.

So i'll take this line from everyone who said it all before me
cause goddamn, aint it the truth
but if we're fucked up, then who are the ones to blame?
well it aint us.
it's you.
