Ice cream melting down my chin
I lick it off
And feel it drip again
Sun beats down upon our necks
Burning naked breasts
All part of the entertainment

My what a crazy world
Why don’t we go dancing in rain
One by one these fields
Of garbage turn to green grass
Bending, breaking our backs
No complaining

I scream, we scream
For the youth of America
The music and the fans
I cry, we cry
Yes, the mess was made by us
But we can try and make amends

Man surfing on a crowd
No water to be found
Half a million sweaty people
The first chord resonates
Shrieks of joy are made
Happiness appears so simple

I scream, we scream
For the youth of America
Who trip and learn to stand
I cry, we cry
Twenty hours in twenty years
What’s in your heart is in your hand

I scream, we scream. I cry, we cry.
Cause a hero leaves the world a better place than he found it
