lyrics

The voices are ringing on the microphone
With the world at their fingertips, silent as stones
They are waiting in line for the poster child
Of a new generation that is all about style

And they ask for my blood now but I’ve got to let go
And they ask for my soul (oh yeah) I’ve got to let go
And we’re walking on ice now but I’ve got to let go
And we’re burning to ashes still I’ve got to let go

Cause I don’t want to be one of the youth of America
Walking the world so blind
Cause we are the slaves of our culture
We take all they feed through our minds

And on the radio the broadcast is clear
And the TV’s are on, yeah the cameras are near
We’re a united front so it’s all very well
We can’t think for ourselves but no one can tell

And they ask for my blood now but I’ve got to let go
And they ask for my soul (oh yeah) I’ve got to let go
And we’re walking on ice now but I’ve got to let go
And we’re burning to ashes still I’ve got to let go

Cause I don’t want to be one of the youth of America
Walking the world so blind
Cause we are the slaves of our culture
We take all they feed through our minds

How many times must we do this again
I’ve heard it before but you’ve spoiled the end
The voices of truth are now on fire
Burning the flames of my desires
This is the way we sleep at night
Knowing our pain is their delight
This is the way we lose control
Stealing and swearing that we never stole

And they ask for my blood now but I’ve got to let go
And they ask for my soul (oh yeah) I’ve got to let go
And we’re walking on ice now but I’ve got to let go
And we’re burning to ashes still I’ve got to let go

Cause I don’t want to be one of the youth of America
Walking the world so blind
Cause we are the slaves of our culture
We take all they feed through our minds

Maybe someday in Australia
The UK or Africa
Someone will stop pretending
Like the Youth in America

And they ask for my blood now but I’ve got to let go
And they ask for my soul (oh yeah) I’ve got to let go
And we’re walking on ice now but I’ve got to let go
And we’re burning to ashes still I’ve got to let go
