Children are called the future of an adult world
They are born with spirits so innocent
'Til we teach them how to hate
Add to the world's confusion

We teach our kids rules
That we don't adhere to ourselves
Right or wrong
What examples can they take?

The people we learn from
Forge the ideas we become

Living in a world they didn't make
Living in a world that's filled with hate
Living in a world where grown-ups break the rules
Living in a world they didn't make
Paying for a lot of adult mistakes
How much of this madness can they take
Our children

Children grow to become our young adults
Problems of the world
They must learn how to confront
Doing drugs and joining gangs to rebel

Colors show they belong
To the social override
'Cause they're living in a space
They feel out of place

Living in a world they didn't make
Living in a world that's filled with hate
Living in a world where grown-ups break the rules
Living in a world they didn't make
Paying for a lot of adult mistakes
How much of this madness can they take
Our children (how much can they take?)

Living in a world they didn't make
Living in a world that's filled with hate
Living in a world where grown-ups break the rules
Living in a world they didn't make
Paying for a lot of adult mistakes
How much of this madness can they take
Our children (how much can they take?)

Children of the world
They are born so innocent
How much can they take?

Living in a world they didn't make (save the babies)
Paying for a lot of adult mistakes (save the babies, save the babies)

This just in
At least five people are dead and thirty others wounded
After a gunman opened fire on a California school playground
And then killed himself, apparently the gunman
Armed with an automatic rifle
Shot the kids during their recess time

    Song MeaningGood song and lyrics. It is about how children are born innocent into a word full of hate and how the cycle continues and needs to end.
