lyrics

Daddy, Daddy, quick come see
Theres a younger me, tearing up MTV
Now I'm hitting triple sweet sixteen
But I looked so great back then

Money money, came so easily
And I'd ride the rollercoaster endlessly
But though the new stuff's straight to DVD
I wouldn’t take those days again

So farewell the future
You know, you never made much sense
But when the past got too unreal
We could invent you to lament
The death of Generation X

We could invent you to lament
The death of Generation X

You find it funny? - well that depends
D'ya wanna know a secret? All my friends
Don't wanna know the truth, just hear me pretend
Everything was better back then

Dearly beloved - here to lament
The passing yeah of generation X
The sweetest, softest sentiment
I could find is "go kill yourself"

So farewell the future
You know, you never made much sense
But when the past got too unreal
We could invent you to lament
The death of Generation X

We could invent you to lament
The death of Generation X
