Kids these days just don't get it They don't think like me Kids these days just don't get it They don't take life seriously My lips moving They say nothing at all Too difficult and technical My back's breaking I keep saying I gotta get outta here, man I'm from the city Why don't you like me? I wish you could make me understand I'm not a monster I speak your language Let me make you understand Why kids these days Just don't get it They don't think like me Kids these days Just don't get it They don't take life seriously I really think that we're alright I just can't figure how To sort these figures out We need to be on all the time There's no turning off Ain't no dropping out Just keep talking I'll keep stopping the clock Predictable, typical It's so simple The writing's all on the wall I don't wanna do this anymore I'm from the city I speak the language I know the business Cause I'm not a monster I'll make it easy Help me try to understand Why kids these days Just don't get it They don't think like me Kids these days Just don't get it They don't take life seriously

THIS IS IT 03:19
I booked a trip today Cause I need to get away I think I deserve it And I'm checked out totally But let's get real anyway You never really get away anyway The same thing, everywhere and every way But it's not so bad It's a beautiful day Somewhere out there This is it, you can't get out of this That's a fact, Jack You're not listening, man This is it, you can't get out of this This is it, you can't get out of this Mom says I'm gonna need The safety and security A nice education It's lost on me totally But let's get real anyway You never really get away anyway The same thing, everywhere and every way So what shall we do? It's a great big world, So let's go explore it! This is it, you can't get out of this It's been a long time Since I felt like myself This is it, you can't get out of this This is it, you can't get out of this This guy keeps following me I just can't get him to leave That guy is actually me But I hate that guy... I have to go Go see a head shrinker This is it, you can't get out of this I'm onto something I'm having a breakthrough! This is it, you can't get out of this This is it, you can't get out of this This is it, you can't get out of this

I look just like everybody in this room Making earnings, making the world go round I get so high, in this skyscraper Like it so much, but I can’t get enough You’ve got to use that golden, most superior calculator You’ve got to count it all up You’ve got to add it all up You’ve got to count it all up You’ve got to add it all up I wake up and I’ve never seen this room I am numbers, I am beside myself I can’t sleep now I am calculating Like it so much, like it so much, Like it so much but I can’t get enough You’ve got to use that golden, most superior calculator You’ve got to count it all up You’ve got to add it all up You’ve got to count it all up You’ve got to add it all up You caught me napping I was so happy Dreaming of the girl with the pretty blonde hair (x2) You’ve got to use that golden, most superior calculator You’ve got to count it all up You’ve got to add it all up You’ve got to count it all up You’ve got to add it all up You’ve got to use it, otherwise what good is it? Add, subtract, multiply, divide your mind Logarithms…matrices…vectors This is an office for godsake!

stranger 03:32
No, I never wanted to stay Now I'm floating and I can't get away But I taste the water and it's sweeter than ever All these people high in the sky You can see it in the whites of their eyes There's a hunger and a burning desire To bring me along It gets stranger here everyday It gets stranger here everyday When you're inside Your thoughts melt away Everyone's insane They want you to play the game I wake up and I'm further away Can't remember what I did yesterday So I ask my neighbor And he looks at me stranger It gets stranger here everyday It gets stranger here everyday When you're inside Your thoughts melt away Everyone's insane But it's all gonna be okay Been walking in a daze all day I hope I make it back okay............. credits
