Illy - Generation Y Lyrics

  • [Illy]
  • Yeah, my Generation Y
  • It's just what we do!
  • Yeah, now where were you when the towers fell?
  • When folk washed away under broke levees and tsunami swells?
  • And it ain't hard to tell, so wide like it's hard to see
  • The separation of uzi shells and artistry
  • Guess it's the heart in me, flowing like an artery
  • The can't-figure-for-the-life-of-me why our army be
  • overseas fighting, Bin Laden been hiding
  • Oil fields guarded, why the ***** soldiers been dying?
  • I'm the first to salute the troops, send 'em prayers
  • And the first to give a middle finger to the *****s who sent 'em there
  • And brother, why would I ever care?
  • How tit-for-tat get us anywhere? Come on, what's the method there?
  • How's that gon' seek peace?
  • When did Hip Hop die? Probably the same night as O.D.B.
  • When we gonna realise hope is free?
  • You can call this a love song, you can call it poetry.. whatever
  • [Chorus]
  • Yeah, so we say what we say like it's all or none
  • Cause we're the ones there when the problems come
  • So we're the ones tryna change the world
  • My generation asks why
  • We fight, we fight, we fight, we fight
  • We fight, we fight with a fist to the sky
  • We fight, we fight, we fight, we fight
  • We fight, we fight with a fist to the sky
  • [Illy]
  • Yeah, what happened to the power of one man's voice
  • when boys my age die from one man's choice?
  • Happy sipping brews in the sun with the boys
  • All I need is a push but ***** a Rolls-Royce
  • How long we gonna let cash rule in the habit of
  • not appreciating what the planet's got?
  • I stopped, switched off the idiot box, ***** a channel swap
  • Why not? It's real life when the camera's off
  • I'm like Martin Luther King with a dream
  • And it sure as shit don't involve Gretel Killeen
  • Make use of my God-given right to speak
  • No threat of bombs dropping's gonna silence me
  • Ain't it worth it if we die free?
  • When did Hip Hop die? Probably the same night as B.I.G.
  • This from the heart, piece by piece
  • You want to call this a love song? Well it's sweet by me.. whatever man
  • [Chorus]
  • [Illy]
  • My mouth drops to the trail blazers, no path guide
  • to show the way they made, we don't ask why
  • We just laugh at how the industry was so damn blind
  • to Hip Hop from our backyard, no gang signs
  • And no *****ed nines, none of that nah
  • Just hot rhymes from our own kind, young Aussie minds
  • Why some push poison like the love's there for exploiting?
  • How long can the culture avoid 'em?
  • Why bother? We good brother, they took cover
  • They mainstream, even our big names hooked up underground
  • I'm asked how I grind till I'm beat
  • Like why would I stay? Bro, why would I leave?
  • It's one life, one may do with less
  • They say Hip Hop died, but that's a lie in the A-U-S
  • We going strong from strength to strength
  • Aussie youth of today backed us, so we represent for them.. my dudes man
  • [Chorus]
