Capturing a generation

This song resonates deeply within me. It captures something of the essence of my generation, a generation with a deep-seated sense of purpose, but no particular cause. A generation that is the most existential and post-postmodern that the world has ever seen, a generation with the power to accomplish so much more than ever before, but lacking the direction to do so. A generation critical of our elders and concerned with the impact we will make for those who follow after us. Yes, a song can capture all these things.
