We tripped on the urge to feel alive
Now I’m struggling to survive
I recently discovered that my peers and I who lived through the 90’s can more or less sing the lyrics to Three Eye Blind’s Semi-charmed Life from memory, without having listened to the song for years. It came on the car radio one night. My friends I began singing to it, while my Millennial brother watched us with rising apprehension.
Your generation is broken, he said when the song was over.
Whatever, what does he know. Damn kids. Get off my lawn.
