Gone Are The Days 

gone are the days

young and care free

nothing else mattered

we just wanted to be

free to make our own choice

free to use our own voice

it was said we were bad

rebellious youth

those were the nice things

some talk was worse

if thinking for myself

following my  own lead

questioning those who deceive

lie and cheat

if that is what defined us

bad, rebellious youth

guilty as charged

my regret we grew up

some gave in

and some gave up

thinking we could not win

now is the time

to speak up again

what you have known all the time

is now coming to pass
