    Lyrics:

    (1) My mother's on the phone, she doesn't understand
    why i'm always fearful of the dangers in the world.
    I said it's different cultures, she's from a different world.
    I said it's a different generation.

    Chorus:
    You know when she was just a child,
    they had to hide in caves and
    hush the babies so the enemies could not find them.
    I can't imagine what it's like to be a parent then
    she's accustomed to the danger.

    (2) My mother's on the phone, she doesn't understand
    why her son isn't settled down and happy.
    I said it's different cultures, she's from a different world.
    I said it's a different generation.

    You know when she was just a child.
    They told the lepers that the blood of kids could
    cure them of their situation.
    I can't imagine what it's like to be a kid back then
    she knows i'm a lucky one.

    (3) My mother's on the phone, she doesn't understand
    why i'm not a braver person in the face of danger.
    I said it's different cultures, she's from a different universe,
    I said it's a different generation.

    You know when she was just a young one,
    she saw the U.N. soldiers firing back on
    battlecruisers out in the distance.
    It makes you feel a little stupid talking back to her.
    She still recalls it all. Show less
