People raise your voices
Don't get caught in that mess
Like a fly in a spider's web
Is it true more is less
Herded like a happy flock
To the big TV slaughter
"Why don't you break that leash?"
Said the heifer to the sheep

It's a new generation
It's a hallucination
It's a mystic vibration
It's just intimidation

It's the will of the people
It's the church with the steeple
It's the sacred devotion
To an unhealthy notion
People raise your voices
Don't fall into that trap
If your friends and your neighbors push
Why don't you push them back
Don't you think the time has come
To stand up and be heard
Ain't no use to try and wait
For the magic word

It's a new generation
It's an infatuation
It's a beautiful body
Both erotic and deadly

It's the fear of the future
It's just surgeons and sutures
It's a spandex obsession
It's a lasting impression
Do you feel the power
Do you feel the power
Baptized in 'lectronic water
Prodigal sons and beautiful daughters
With smiles and bows and rosy cheeks
And the righteous bath
Death to the freaks
Do you feel the power
Do you feel the power
From the man whose voice sounds reassuring
Completely firm and so alluring
He's lived a thousand times before
And seen the world from shore to shore
With the calmness and tranquility
That oozes credibility
WIth the wisdom and the confidence
That seem to scream out common sense
And it makes you feel just like a babe
Daddy holding you tight and safe
Hush babe everything's
Daddy's gonna stay with you tonight
Now he's got you by the balls
He can sell you anything at all
From morality to diamond rings
To genocide to magazines
From religion to cosmology to the end of a democracy

It's a new generation
It's divine inspiration
Always ready to follow
Ever willing to swallow
All the doctor's prescriptions
All the mystic inscriptions
It's the spandex obsession
It's a lasting impression
It's the calm meditation
Of a tranquilized nation
It's a hallucinaion
It's a new generation
It's a new generation
It's a new generation
It's a new generation
It's a new generation
