about

This song is about classic British children's television science fiction.

It's also about the experience of going through puberty and discovering you're gay or queer or transgender and not 'normal' like you'd been brought up to believe.

I'd like to thank Talis Kimberley and the UK Filk Community for inspiring and encouraging my musical creativity, and for giving feedback that helped me to improve this song.

lyrics

It isn't easy growing up
Feeling different, feeling new
Understanding where we fit
With the changes we go through

Life is full of turmoil
And questions old and new
When it seems the world's turned upside down
What's a teenager to do?

Now they're bending the wheels
Now they're smashing the clocks
They've kicked in the telly
They're blocking the locks
Society's ending
The world's rearranged
Now the pylons are screaming
And everything's changed


Oh we're going through changes
Feeling different, feeling new
Understanding where we fit
And the changes we go through

Life is full of turmoil
And questions old and new
When it seems the world's turned upside down
What's a teenager to do?

Now the paintings are changing
Now the weather has changed
With blue and green badges
Causing all of the rage
Society's ending
The world's rearranged
Now the colours are fighting
And everything's changed


We know it's very hard
But there is another way
We're the people of tomorrow
At the dawning of a brand new day


It isn't easy growing up
Asking questions, feeling new
Running from the world around
And the things they put us through

And life is full of struggles
And things we mustn't do
When it seems the world's against us
What's a teenager to do?

Now you're coming of age
But it feels like a trap
Now the masters are coming
With their happiness caps
Childhood is ending
The world's been arranged
Now the tripods are rulers
And everything's changed


We go through changes
Being different, feeling new
When you find your life's turned upside down
What's a teenager to do?
