Makes sense, cause fifteen year olds seem twenty
And twenty five year olds seem ten

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Ft. Evan Roman & Macklemore) – A Wake Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

While many people believe today’s generation of kids are growing up too fast, others point out that the previous generation, who are now in their mid-20’s, is considerably more immature for their age.

In the second part, “And twenty five year olds seem ten,” Macklemore could be referring to the fact that when he was 25, he moved back in with his parents, the actions of someone closer to the age of 10.
