Im not the one who made the world what it is today
Im not the one who caused the problems started long ago
But now I deal with all the consequence that troubles our times
I carry on and never once have even questioned why

Im innocent
But the weight of the world is on my shoulders
Im innocent
But the battles started are far from over

Were not the ones who leave the homeless in the streets at night
Were not the ones whove kept minorities and women down
Still we grow and then the problems they become our own
We carry on without even realizing why

Were innocent
But the weight of the world is on our shoulders
Were innocent
But the battles left us are far from over

Were not the ones whose pollution blackened our skies
And ruined our streams
Were not the ones who made the nuclear bombs
That threaten our lives

Were not the ones who let the children starve in faraway lands
Were not the ones who made the streets unsafe to walk at night

And even if we try and not become so overwhelmed
And if we make some contribution to the plight we see
Still our descendants will inherit our mistakes of today
Theyll suffer just the same as we and never wonder why
