"24-HOUR GENERATION"

Verse 1
From Australia to the USA, everyone's got to have it right away.
Buy it now; fix it quick, and never mind how you'll pay for it.
Fads and fashions come and go, and just what's real, well, Heaven knows.
Nothing now is made to last, even the truth is disappearing fast.

Refrain 1
But you know that there's a price to pay, yeah,
For running blindly down this easy way, yeah!

Chorus 1
For the 24-hour generation it's time for liberation
From your 24-hour a day pursuit of your own happiness.
24 hours and still you're running out of time, what are you becoming?
It's time to face the facts and send out an S.O.S.

Verse 2
For the 24-hour generation, there's no need to stretch your patience:
Instant coffee, instant wealth, instant sex and instant health.
You've got a problem, fix it now: pull the trigger, click the mouse.
Sure there'll be some side effects, but at least it's quick, so what the heck?

Refrain 2
No, nothing that you can't get right away, no:
A house, a car, a candy bar or AIDS, yeah!

Chorus 2
For the 24-hour generation it's time for liberation
From your 24-hour a day pursuit of your own happiness.
24 hours and still you're running out of time, what are you becoming?
It's time to face the facts and send out an S.O.S.

Refrain 3
And somewhere, maybe not too far away, no,
There's someone suff'rin' 24 hours a day, yeah!

Chorus 3
For the 24-hour generation it's time for liberation
From your 24-hour a day pursuit of your own happiness.
24 hours and still you're running out of time, what are you becoming?
It's time to face the facts and send out an S.O.S.
