Trying to forget your generation.
You know all the ways when it's up to you.
The ends must justify the means.
I say your generation don't mean a thing to me.

I say your generation don't mean a thing to me.
I say your generation don't mean a thing to me!

It might take a bit of violence,
But violence ain't our only stance.
It might make our friends enemies,
But we gotta take that chance.

Ain't no time for substitutes.
Ain't no time for idle threats.
Actions rather hard to place,
Cause what you give is what you get.

So, your generation!
It's your generation!
Well it's your generation!
It's your generation!

(Guitar Solo)

I say your generation don't mean a thing to me.
I say your generation don't mean a thing to me!

But violence ain't our only stance.
It might make our friends enemies,
But we gotta take that chance.

Ain't no time for substitutes.
Ain't no time for idle threats.
Actions rather hard to place,
Cause what you give is what you get.

So, your generation!
It's your generation!
Well it's your generation!
It's your generation!
To the end!

Justify the means.
