21st Century Kid

Lyricist: Jamie Cullum     Composer: Jamie Cullum

There's maybe a way I can tell you
cos with everyday things continue
to get more compromised,
so who will fantasise
a new generation politicised

when things are done in our own name
are we as much to blame?
then it's become clear to me,
but only lately
the ground is removed underneath

shout it from the brink,
you're louder than you think

21st century kid surrounded by illusion and confusion,
so maybe if you're holding out for the truth now,
could it be the greatest weapon?
could it be the greatest weapon?
your weapon

nothing is certain except a memory
and that's soon washed away by a low sea
now sit yourself down my one
and see what you become,
ignoring a smouldering gun

white dove's flown
she think we're on our own?

21st century kid surrounded by illusion and confusion.
so maybe if you're holding out for the truth now,
could it be the greatest weapon?

21st century kid surrounded by illusion and confusion.
so maybe if you're holding out for the truth now,
could it be the greatest weapon?
could it be the greatest weapon?
your weapon
