Rise Against – Nowhere Generation Lyrics

Nowhere Generation Lyrics – Rise Against

We are the Nowhere Generation
We are the kids that no one wants
We are a credible threat
To the rules you set
A cause to be alarmed

We are not the names that we’ve been given
We speak a language you don’t know
We are the Nowhere Generation
The Nowhere Generation

One day
All the walls will come down
All the doors will open
All the roads will lead home
But right now
We are spiraling down
And the longer we wait
The further we go

Are we slipping through the cracks now
No place left on your map now to call home?

We are the Nowhere Generation
The kids that no one wants
We are a credible threat
To the rules you set
A cause to be alarmed
We are not the names that we’ve been given
We speak a language you don’t know
We are the Nowhere Generation
The Nowhere Generation

“For your sweat, you’ll be rewarded”
They told us every day
“There’s a land of milk & honey and
it’s not that far away”
But the finish line kept moving
And the promises wore thin
The smoke on the horizon
Was the burning promised land

This place used to be somewhere but they
Sold it out from under us
Our voices all ignored

We are the Nowhere Generation
The kids that no one wants
We are a credible threat
To the rules you set
A cause to be alarmed
We are not the names that we’ve been given
We speak a language you don’t know
We are the Nowhere Generation
The Nowhere Generation
And yet we climb these burning ladders
Still, we raise for them the hammers
Swinging low
“What exactly are we after?”
They will ask
And we will answer

We are the Nowhere Generation
The kids that no one wants
We are a credible threat
To the rules you set
A cause to be alarmed

We are not the names that we’ve been given
We speak a language you don’t know
We are the Nowhere Generation
The Nowhere Generation

We are the Nowhere Generation.
