How they make them so young, into the fold
Were our futures set, at twenty-years-old
Oh what are we workin' towards?
And it happens at least, once a day
I know you can't be, happy this way
Livin' road to road, we climb to fall
You were a child once
Passion and ignorance
Was that the rub? prunes in the tub
And you are so jaded
With this placement
Oh who decides, not you and I
In this world
Some seem to always do, as those before
Bow down their heads to the metaphors
That their fathers learned, it's safe when it's the same
But oh there's hope to expand your mind
Not everyone has the benefit of time
So let's make this worth it, let's learn to feel right
You were a child once
Passion and ignorance
Do you still scream in the night?
And it's gonna be a long day
When you breathe this way
Oh what a curse, to taste the hurt
In this world
