The A.S.G (Attention Seeking Generation)

Teenage suicide,
Teenage drinking,
Teenage drama queens,
Everybody ignores them,
Pays them no mind,
And then it’s too late,
They fall through,
Hook line and sinker,
They fall for you,
To show you the truth,
That you never cared,
And you still never will,
About teenage pregnancy,
Or teenage effigies,
Under the carpet it goes,
With your last season’s shoes,
Because like everybody else you pick and you choose,
What you listen to,
What you believe,
Turn off the radio when you hear a teenager is teased,
To the point of suicide,
They don’t run and hide like they use to,
Dead ends everywhere for teenagers,
But you still don’t care,
So keep sipping on your coffee cup,
Chuck the newspaper in the bin as you walk to your office,
Ignore the wheelchair man trying to get on the bus,
Because you don’t care,
Because nobody cares,
About teenagers,
Put plastic wrap over their issues,
In the fridge it goes,
To heat up and open up later,
But like everything else,
You let it grow old,
And in the bin it goes,
Like the evening news,
Because nobody cares anymore,
We are only just teenage drama queens aren’t we?
Putting on shows left right and center,
Because we like attention,
Attention seeking generation,
We file past you with stapled shut mouths,
And bound hands,
With sticky notes on our chests,
Attention seeking generation,
That’s what you see on the billboards,
The evening news,
The newspapers and the radio,
We are attention seekers,
Attention seeking generation,
So tell me what will it take,
For you to open your eyes?
Take the issues out of your plastic wrap you saved for later?
Pick up the paper from the bin?
I guess we have to line up on ropes,
Kick the bucket from under each other,
So here we are,
You said we were attention seekers,
This is what you wanted,
Clap, clap, clap for us
We are the Attention Seeking Generation

Artist's Description

it’s just really about how people ignore teenage issues at present, it gets overlooked at more. To explain this, a lot of teenagers do attention seek, and because of this many people ignore a teenager when they finally say they have problems, and this is just really about all of that.
