Raise your glass to the Generation Twenty-Something

...ascending!

Kerrigan/Lowdermilk once again describe my life in a nutshell, basically.






“Twenty-Something”=from Tales from the Bad Years=

My whole life is right in front me.I can go anywhere.
Two whole decades can’t prepare you for the moment,When the page is blank before you,And you’re barely even twenty-something.
Nothing’s standing in my way.No one’s holding me back.
College ended and there’s no one here to tell me
Not to hit the bars and rent some cars.
I’ll fuck around
But then I’m gonna change the world.
It’s the generation twenty-something ascending.
We might be young. We might be poor.
But we know we deserve much more than what our parents have.
Who knows what that’ll be?
But we’re ready to discover
If there is life after the Wii.
‘Cause as long as we’re still young and fresh
And twenty-something, we’re free.
This is it. This is what’s hot.
It’s your moment. It’s your decade.
But you’re only twenty-something til you’re not.
Hurry up. Do it now.
If you don’t, if you blink,Then it’s over.
Show me something I can get behind. And I’m already there.
I have more free time than I know what to do with.
I’m in twenty different places
But I guess it’s ’cause I’m twenty-something.
Single with a bach’lor pad.
Now I just need a job.I’ve got time to kill until my life becomes more real.
The time is now for wearing heels,
For roommates, drugs,For chance encounters.
Raise a glass to the generation twenty-something ascending.
We might be young. we might be poor.
But we know we deserve much more than what our parents have.
Who knows what that’ll be?
We’re the target demographic.
We’re the reason for tv.
We’re obsessively and definitely twenty-something and free.
Don’t think about tomorrow,
There’s enough to do today.
I’m young, smart, on my way. This is my day.
You blinked. You’re not twenty-something.
This is it. This is what’s hot.
It’s your moment. It’s your decade.
But you’re only twenty-something til you’re not.
Hurry up. Do it now.
If you don’t, if you blink,Then it’s over.
Don’t think about tomorrow,
There’s enough to do today.
I’m young, smart, on my way.This is my day.
You blinked.You’re not twenty-something.
Raise a glass to the generation twenty-something ascending.
We might be young. we might be poor.
But we know we deserve much more than what our parents have.
Who knows what that’ll be?
When you’re twenty you’re just starting…
When you’re twenty-four…
You’re twenty-five…
You’ll never feel more perfect when life starts at twenty-three.
Because we’re ready and we’re waiting
And We're twenty-something
And free...
