Lyrics

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing with my life
I keep trying write a song to change the world
My friends keep telling me 'Jake it can't be done'
And my girlfriend says 'Jake yeah you know it can't be done'

But I'll keep on trying prove 'em wrong
I'll keep on till I prove them wrong
Cos it's not too late I don't wanna be
part of a generation who stopped evolution
Let's not hesitate when it's our
children's children's childrens fate that
We hold in our hands

I don't wanna stand with you all ashamed
In front of the same God on judgement day
Saying you're all equally to blame for watching paradise fry
How much proof did you need showing to
you it's was all laid out like a bad tattoo
Saying 'You're all gonna die'
Christians Jews and Muslims too
It's time to put your pointless pride aside
Jihad Gee Whiz whatever the problem was or is
Even if you won your war what would reside?
Governments have all been wasting your time
Cos climate change is the biggest threat ah
Facing humankind

Oh it's not too late
I don't wanna be part of a generation who stopped evolution
Let's not hesitate when it's our
children's children's childrens fate that
We hold in our hands

I see my fathers father's father's fathers
Stretching back to the beginning of time and they're all seething
They're saying why did we bother with all that
And there was all that fighting killing
dying broken bones surviving them and bleeding
For all you here today to just
throw it away ahIt's hard to be believing

And I see my mother's mother's mothers all
Crying and wringing their hands and
pleadingSaying why did we do all that
Birthing nursing nurturing loving caring and feeding
Not to mention all that educating cooking
cleaningIroning bum wiping and gender stereotyping
What was it for what was it for what was it for
It's gotta have some meaning

Oh it's not too late
I don't wanna be part of a generation who stopped evolution
Let's not hesitate when it's our
children's children's childrens fate that
We hold in our hands
Don't let it spill through like sand

The hour of our greatest effort is approaching
We will not fail mankind at this turning
Winston Churchill

And if not now than when
And if not here then where
And if not us them whom
Get off your butts really soon

Oh it's not too late
I don't wanna be part of a generation who stopped evolution
Oh let's not hesitate when it's our
children's children's childrens fate that
We hold in our hands
Oh it's not too lateI don't wanna be
part of the generation who stopped evolution
Oh let's not hesitate when it's our
children's children's childrens fate that
We hold in our handsIn our hands
