The Forgotten Generation

Words and Music by Brian Fife



I don't really think anybody will be calling us the greatest generation.
In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't remember us at all.
We didn't stand up or fight for much of anything; we had no defining moment.
We played video games and hung out at the mall.
No one gave us a nickname; we weren't really known for anything.
And we had no opinion on any kind of war.

CHORUS
Even if nobody remembers, I won't forget those days.
We didn't think they'd soon be gone forever; we'd be going our separate ways.

VERSE 2
So many of the places where we spent our days would soon become outdated.
The trends had changed so they came and tore them down.
Did we leave a lasting impression? Is there any kind of proof that we were here?
We may be the only evidence around.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Right here at the bridge is where I'm supposed to say something utterly profound,
But there's nothing more for me to add; just simply look around.

FINAL CHORUS
Even if nobody remembers, I won't forget those days.
We didn't think they'd soon be gone forever; we'd be going our separate ways.
Even if nobody remembers, I won't forget those days.
We didn't think they'd soon be gone forever; we'd be going out separate ways.
Even if nobody remembers, I won't forget those days.
We didn't think they'd soon be gone forever; we'd be going out separate ways.
The forgotten generation, the forgotten generation,
The forgotten generation, the forgotten generation, we are.
The forgotten generation, the forgotten generation,
The forgotten generation, the forgotten generation.
