The Heroine of the Millennium Generation

May 16, 2008
By Alex Waite, West Des Moines, IA

Do you feel alive?
You’re breathing and living
But your addiction to conformity
Takes your life away

Who are you?
You’re part of American society
A piece of socialized property
But you can’t remember your last own idea

Do I feel alive?
I write to express myself
I play guitar to become myself
Even those I don’t know see myself

I am alive and you are dead
I’m standing out while you’re fading in
Our paths cross, you see I’m alive
And suddenly you realize you’re dying inside
