I am from a century I wish to escape
Justin Bieber, One Direction, and YOLO swag
Where if you are intelligent, you’re strange
But cool if your pants sag
Can anyone explain that to me?

I am from boy bands, but I listen to rock
Sparkly pink, neon skinny jeans
How do I stand out in all black?
Everyone else looks the same to me
This generation is way out of whack

I am from lol, rofl, and omg
Srsly wht if we rlly talkd like this?
Where has English gone?
Surely this is not the same thing
Shakespeare must be rolling in his grave

I am from the 21st century
Where intelligence is neglected
Boy bands are worshiped
And there is no music on MTV
What happened?
And how can we fix it?
this is what I think of this generation...and I'm part of it haha

We can't fix it. Unless we brain wash every person in the world. I don't even know what started the change. Technology maybe?

Yeah, I think I'm turning into one to. Although I don't own a phone, well I have a house phone, but I don't have a cellphone. But yes, tech zombies.

Yeah... Whenever boredom strikes, turn on the computer.
Even if you have no idea what you want to do on it.

You definately nailed it!:clap:
I´m even more afraid of the new "random-generation" - watching Doctor Who because the 10th Doc is cute, D&D is suddenly cool (I got bullied in school for scifi and tabletops, remember these days?) and StarTrek is nothing to be ashamed of anymore, since in the new films they all look like they are casted from different boybands.
Also "metal" is suddenly cool, while with "metal" most seem only to understand "Bullet for my Valentine":nuu:


I remember when Emos appeared and people started calling me an emo too, now, a few years later I´m called "random" while I don´t even now what this Homestuck is... Its like the 14-16 year old people are immitating a state of "Being openminded", collecting and searching for anything that could make them a real person with individuality, while thy and up as "random" - a collection of bits, parts and remnants of other lifes... Its so sad to see this attention seeking hords every day...

PS: I hope my grammar is correct, english is not my first language^^

I'm glad you like it ^^, and I know what you mean! When I was a nerd, that wasn't cool, then when I was emo/goth that wasn't cool. Now everyone is trying to be nerdy or goth (and failing quite miserably haha) 

I'm only 16 and so people lump me in with this sad generation that only cares about how much they can freak out the generations of the past >_<

Oh and no worries, your grammar is just fine :)
