Livin' in a World Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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

Livin' in a world they didn't make
Livin' in a world that's filled with hate
Livin' in a world where grown-ups
Break the rules

Livin' in a world they didn't make
Payin' 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

Doin' drugs, joinin' gangs to rebel
Colors show they belong
To the social override

'Cause they're livin' in a space
They feel out of place

Livin' in a world they didn't make
Livin' in a world that's filled with hate
Livin' in a world where grown-ups
Break the rules

Livin' in a world they didn't make
Payin' for a lot of adult mistakes
How much of this madness can they take
Our children?

Livin' in a world they didn't make
Livin' in a world that's filled with hate
Livin' in a world where grown-ups
Break the rules

Livin' in a world they didn't make
Payin' 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 all so innocent
How much can they take?
How much can they take?

[Incomprehensible]
