Youth

Sung By: Matisyahu

Some of them come now
Some of them running
Some of them looking for fun
Some of them looking for a way out of confusion
Some of them don't know what to be
Some of them don't know where to go
Some of them trust their instincts that something's missing from the show
Some don't fit society and insides are lying low
Some of them teachers squash the flame 'fore it had a chance to grow
Some of them embers still glow - them charcoal, hushed and low
Some of them come with their hunger suppressed not fed them feel a death blow

Young man
Control in your hands
Slam your fist on the table and make your demand
Take a stand, fan the fire for the flame of the youth
Got the freedom to choose, you better make the right move
Young man - the power's in your hand
Slam your fist on the table and make your demand
You gotta make the right move

(Youth is the engine of the world)x2

Storm the halls of vanity
Focus your energy
Into a laser beam
Streaming shattered light
Unites to pierce between the seams
And it seems
The world open peering
The children see
Rapid fire for your mind
Half a truth is just a lie
They rub me the wrong way
They say their way or fall behind
Seventeen disconnect left out
The concept as to why
There's a spiritual emptiness
So the youth them get vexed
Skip class and get wrecked
Feel with beer and cigarettes
To fill the hole in their chest!

Young man
Control in your hand
Slam your fist on the table and make your demand
Take a stand, fan the fire for the flame of the youth
Got the freedom to choose, you better make the right move
Young man - the power's in your hand
Slam your fist on the table and make your demand
You better make the right move

You got the freedom to choose
Better make the right move
You got the freedom to choose

Young man
Control in your hand
Slam your fist on the table and make your demand
Take a stand, fan the fire for the flame of the youth
Got the freedom to choose, you better make the right move
Young man - the power's in your hand
Slam your fist on the table and make your demand
You better make the right move

(Youth is the engine of the world)x5
