We are born into the world
with a blank slate for a mind
capacity for learning,
and tightly closed up eyes
the learning comes so quick
that we have no time to choose
our own set of standards
and our own set of rules
so we learn, and we learn young
no one thinks you're hard
if you turn and run
we learn, and we learn young
no one dismiss you
when they're staring down your gun

[Chorus]
So all along the city streets
I'm scared to walk alone
in the dirty alleyways,
I'm scared to walk alone
and I admit I've never lived
the life that you must know
but violence towards innocents
won't fix your broken homes
(you reap the seeds you sow)

we determine what we think
based on what we're shown
a lack of education leaves the world unkown
so all we have to go on is the world that we see
a world based on violence
and a world based on greed
so we learn, and we learn young
no one thinks you're hard
if you turn and run
we learn, and we learn young
no one dismiss you
when they're staring down your gun

[Chorus]
