"Children" as written by and Kelly Winrich Brandon Young....
Children shut your eyes
We'll tell you what to see
This world is burning down
And you're the ones to lead

Now look into their hearts
All those who hold the lead
Don't listen to their lies
They only want one thing
Well, I only want one thing

They'll rob you from the truth
And they'll steal you from our house
The blind leading the blind
Don't hang around with their kind

'Cause I love the life I lead
And I know my enemies
Well, if God is on our side
Well, that's all you really need
Well, that's all we really need
Well, that's all I really need

Follow down the road
I was led before you were born
No it's not your choice
To pick your own fight

When you sitting second class
And as long as you're in control
Speaking when you're asked
You make your own stand
And you take your own stand
Well, I'll make my own stand
And I take my own stand

    General CommentI must say this song was more amazing live than it was on the album... they do the drums so well and so literally and they just boom and the whole room shakes and it's just amazing.

    Just from reading the lyrics, (I know nothing of what the band has or hasn't said), it seems like they're warning the future generations to not make the same mistakes his generation did. Don't follow blindly, don't put absolute faith in something just because you're forced into it...

    MemoryThis song reminds me of a girl I met. She was stuck within the influence of friends and family, and was really distressed by everything that's happening, this song brings comfort to her, telling her if gods on your side, and if you are out looking for good you'll find good, as well as comfort. Her best friend tries to get her to do things that don't reach her standards. She's taking her own stand.
