Now, everybody's looking for a little peace of mind
We're a generation running out of time
There's a bomb, there's a man, there's a gun in his hand, yeah
Well, nobody smiles at strangers, we're scared from birth
Afraid the man's gonna take us for all that we're worth
Strip us of our pride - make a strike from inside
(Come on and tell me)
How long will we be victims of fear
With a man and a gun and the "day after" fear
Jesus, smile down upon your children
Smile down upon your family
Now, even lovers have trouble at hand
What's your preference - where do you stand?
You get uptight about it, gonna fight about it
Gonna fight about love - that makes no sense to me
Wanting independence, separate but equal
Some are here, and others there
One more for the sequel to the heartache
How much more can we take?
(Won't you tell me)
How long will we be victims of fear
With a man and a gun and the "day after" fear
Jesus, smile down upon your children
Smile down upon your family
