My generation will make a change This generation will make a change (Yes we will, yes we will) My generation will make a change (Do you hear me now) This generation will make a change (we bout to make a change) Now mi love fi see the schoolas dem a graduate A study hard and save the party for the holidays Diplomatic with dem Diploma And them bound fi great Because dem nah pick up no matic and a perpetrate And then I love the energies whe dem a generate My Generation it so special it will make a change Because the elders sew the seed and it a germinate So anytime dem see the progress dem a celebrate Because we rising up despite of the economy And then a we a star the show like the astronomy And how we keep on breaking through is an anomaly Because we keep remaining true without apology The mission ha to carry through and finish properly Say Gambia to Guadeloupe Paris to Napoli Say Zambia to Honolulu back to Tripoli And everybody want a future living happily My generation will make a change (we'll make a change, we'll make a change yeah) This generation will make a change (this generation yeah) My generation will make a change (will make a change, will make a change) This generation will make a change (I swear we will, I swear this now yeah) Can you blame my generation, subjected gentrification, Depicting their frustrations over ill instrumentation Cause music is the way to convey to you what I'm facing, Placing my life in front of your eyes for your observation Now if you can't relate then maybe you are too complacent, Athletes today are scared to make Muhammad Ali statements Whats up with tomorrow? Will you lead? Will you follow? Improve your values Education is real power I reach em like Bono So get rid of your self sorrow Add some bravado Get wealthy likes Wells Fargo Its truth, that I am you And I am proof Surviving through We do what we gotta do Yo we could break the cycle let nobody lie to you Then maybe put our sons and our daughters in private school Cause there's a mission we gotta finish before we leave This generation is destined to do historic deeds. My generation will make a change (ooh ooh ooh) This generation will make a change (my generation, this generation yes) My generation will make a change (will make a change, will make a change) This generation will make a change (this generation now) Ugh if you weather that storm Then that rain bring sun Been a long time comin' I know change gon' come Man I gotta keep it movin' to the beat of my drum Last night I set the future at the feet of my son But they thinkin' that my generation gotta die young If we all come together then they cant divide one Don't worry bout it just be about it Got a message from god heaven too crowded But I say hey young world you've never looked betta' And I heard change start with man in the mirror ugh This generation I'm a represent A generation led by a black president Now hows that for change Who knew that could change I don't even look at the flag the same hey, ugh So when you finish readin' revelations Thank god for my generation My generation will make a change yeah This generation will make a change yeah (this generation yeah) My generation will make a change (for good for better) This generation will make a change yeah
