Excuse me kind people
But can you raise your voices?
Your lectures aren’t getting through my ‘thick’ skull
Your commands aren’t reaching my ‘imaginative’ mind

Because guess what I’m a teen
But that’s not it, is it?
You don’t have to remind me that you were a teen
Once upon a time…many years ago

That you’ve gone through everything I have
Cause that would be an outright lie
And plain disrespectful
Sorry am I being rude yet?

Do you actually think that being a teen long long ago
Gave you everything?
Everything to feel?
Everything to think?

This is a new time
And guess what
I’m a new mind
With different feelings and thoughts

Guess you could call me human
Guess you could say I feel different about things
Guess you could say you don’t know me
Guess you could say you can’t imagine what I’ve been through

Sure you were a teen
But that didn’t give you the key to life
Don’t even try to unlock the door with your ‘imagined key’
Cause the flood would come

And believe me when I say
You don’t want the New Generation
To drown you

I'm sick of how every adult say's automatically "I've been there." or "I know what your going through, afterall i was a teen."
