The standing ovation
And then I see them giving a standing ovation to a song that, in the end, means only that they are all fools. They hold on to it as if it was the revelation of the greatest truth, when the truth - that truth - has not even been hiding all this time. It has been out in the open, roaming free, doing it's damage to us all. That the people of my generation need an obvious, somewhat sarcastic (although not bad) song to think about their reality is not really a compliment. But the fact that they heed such a statement and yet do nothing but cheer it - now that's the saddest thing of all. It's just what makes me think that, in a way, we kinda deserve it.
