grandson - Left Behind lyrics

[Verse 1]
When she asks me where I'm from
I catch my tongue before saying I'm American
It's getting embarrassing (It's getting embarrassing)
Freedom's running up a fever
Change ain't nothing but a T-shirt
All my heroes need a rework
Or they're in the freezer

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm feeling
Like I don't have a reason to believe in
Lying on the pavement, they're leaving me behind
I'm bleeding out

[Chorus]
I don't wanna move on
But I don't wanna get left behind
I don't wanna move on
But I don't wanna gеt left behind
I wanna lead a gеneration
But the train's about to leave the station
I don't wanna move on
But I don't wanna get left behind

[Post-Chorus]
But I don't wanna get left behind

[Verse 2]
Maybe they would listen to me one time
If I died on the frontline
As a martyr in the bloodline
Instead, I'm singing in the sunshine
Oh no, no, no
I talked to an old man, he said, "Listen, son
I, too, thought I'd start a revolution
If you don't die young, then you live to see
That which you fear is that which you become"

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm feeling
Like I don't have a reason to believe in
Lying on the pavement, they're leaving me behind
I'm bleeding out

[Chorus]
I don't wanna move on
But I don't wanna get left behind
I don't wanna move on
But I don't wanna get left behind
I wanna lead a generation
But the train's about to leave the station
I don't wanna move on
But I don't wanna get left behind

[Post-Chorus]
But I don't wanna get left behind

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm feeling
Like I don't have a reason to believe in
Lying on the pavement, they're leaving me behind
I'm bleeding out
I'm grieving
But does any of this pain have meaning?
Or is it all for nothing?
They're leaving me behind, I'm bleeding out

[Chorus]
I don't wanna move on
But I don't wanna get left behind (I don't wanna be left behind)
I don't wanna move on
But I don't wanna get left behind (I don't wanna be left behind)
I wanna lead a generation
But the train's about to leave the station
I don't wanna move on
But I don't wanna get left behind (I don't wanna be left behind)

[Post-Chorus]
But I don't wanna get left behind
But I don't wanna get left behind
