New Generation – Oingo Boingo

Like a fly in a spider’s web, is it true more is less
Herded like a happy flock to the big T. V. slaughter
“;Why don’t you break that leash,”; said the heifer to the sheep

It’s a new generation
It’s a hallucination
It’s a mystic vibration
It’s just intimidation
It’s the will of the people
It’s the church with the steeple
It’s the sacred devotion
To an unhealthy notion

People raise your voices, don’t get into that trap
If your friends and your neighbors push
Why don’t you push them back
Don’t you think the time has come
To stand up and be heard
Ain’t no use to try and wait
For the magic word

It’s a new generation
It’s an infatuation
It’s a beautiful body
Both erotic and deadly
It’s the fear of the future
It’s just surgeons and sutures
It’s a spandex obsession
It’s a lasting impression

Do you feel the power
Do you feel the power
Baptized in electronic water
Prodigal sons and beautiful daughters
With smiles and bows and rosy cheeks
And the righteous bath
Death to the freaks
Do you feel the power
Do you feel the power
From the man whose voice sounds reassuring
Completely firm and so alluring, Like’s he’s lived a thousand times before
And seen the world from shore to shore
With the calmness and tranquility that oozes credibility
With the wisdom and the confidence that seem to scream out common sense
And it makes you feel just like a babe
