lyrics

Hey kid, you’re growing up so fast
I wish your innocence would last
Soon you’ll have questions ‘bout the stories we’ve told
Why’d we build a world fit to explode
Then kick the can straight down the road
Yeah that’s one hell of a future we’ve sold
Now I’m not saying there was no need to fight
Just that the battle wasn’t right
We got angry at the silliest things
I might be a little older
But I’m still looking for an answer
How do we explain this to the kids?

Now I know I’ve made mistakes, but I know for sure
This time I won’t walk away like I did before
And the promise that I make, it’s a promise I won’t break so easy

Yeah I wish I’d made a bigger stand
And I wish that I had been the man
You always seem to think that I was
In time we will hand you this Earth
And it’s not the one that you deserve
And We’ll act all surprised that we were the cause
I know what I need to do
I’m not destined to disappoint you
This should never have to be your fight
It’s time we strike a different chord
And fight for all that we ignored
It’s time to start tomorrow tonight

I know I’ve made mistakes, but I know for sure
This time I won’t walk away like I did before
And the promise that I make, it’s a promise I won’t break so easy

Yeah I know I’ve made mistakes, but I know for sure
This time I won’t walk away like I did before
And the promise that I make, it’s a promise I won’t break so easy
