P.O.D - Youth Of The Nation

Last day of the rest of my life
I wish I would've known
Cause I didn't kiss my mama goodbye

I didn't tell her that I loved her
and how much I care
Or thank my pops for all the talks
And all the wisdom he shared

Unaware, I just did what I always do
Everyday, the same routine
Before I skate off to school

But who knew that this day wasn't like the rest
Instead of taking a test
I took two to the chest

Call me blind, but I didn't see it coming
Everybody was running
But I couldn't hear nothing

Except gun blasts, it happenede so fast
I don't really know this kid
Even though I sit by him in class

maybe this kid was reaching out for love
Or maybe for a moment
He forgot who he was
Or maybe this kid just wanted to be hugged
Whatever it was
I know it's because

C/o :-
We are We are...the youth of nation

Little Suzy, she was only twelve 
She was given the world 
With every chance to excel 

Hang with the boys and hear the stories they tell 
She might act kind of proud 
But no respect for herself 

She finds love in all the wrong places 
The same situations 
Just different faces 

Changed up her pace since her daddy left her 
Too bad he never told her 
She deserved much better 

Johnny boy always played the fool 
He broke all the rules 
So you would think he was cool 

He was never really one of the guys 
No matter how hard he tried 
Often thought of suicide 

It's kind of hard when you ain't got no friends 
He put his life to an end 
They might remember him then 

You cross the line and there's no turning back 
Told the world how he felt 
With the sound of a gat 


Who's to blame for the lives that tragedies claim 
No matter what you say 
It don't take away the pain 

That I feel inside, I'm tired of all the lies 
Don't nobody know why 
It's the blind leading the blind 

I guess that's the way the story goes 
Will it ever make sense 
Somebody's got to know 

There's got to be more to life than this 
There's got to be more to everything 
I thought exists
