Is this the same nation that I grew up in?

If I fell asleep in the 90’s and woke up today,
I wouldn’t know where to start or what to say.
Back then they called me funny but now I’m called offensive,
Even if I say – I’m Fine, they tell me I’m being passive aggressive.


Damn, things have changed; the margins have thinned,
Is this the same nation that I grew up in?


Back then having an opinion was considered being smart,
Now I’m being labeled a rebellion – a disgruntled upstart.
I didn’t know we had to get high each time we were low,
Now I’m not even invited to a party if I don’t smoke!


Gosh things are weird; my head’s up in a spin,
Is this the same nation that I grew up in?


Talking Politics was boring back then; no one had a clue,
Now that’s all that people do, they’d prefer it over you.
Sport was just a physical game, there was not much being said.
Now I’m in bar fight because I like some team in red!


Be careful what you say or they’ll throw you in the bin,
Jeez, Is this the same nation that I grew up in?
