I'm looking down into the eyes of hopelessness

They're crying out to me

I see the pain it's so much more than youth should know

It tears me apart

What can I do to change what I see

This vicious cycle must come to an end



[CHORUS:]

Can't you see, we're crushing the hearts of the innocent

We're teaching them to fail

And how it breaks me to see how we're living and punishing the ones that need us to care

To see them hurting

Feels like knuckles to the back of my head



Where have the days gone that a promise was forever

Families stuck together



We wonder why their generation struggles to get by

There's no one to help what can I do to change what I see

This vicious cycle must come to an end

    General CommentIts talking about how kids today are neglected and parents are working, people dont stay married and the likes of that. We should be helping those people instead as they are hurting them we're hurting them more, we're the only ones that can stop this
