Think back when you had no cares in the world
You didn’t know all the horrible there are
So impressionable and so optimistic, ready to learn
Anything would be possible, you were so sure
But we get older, our vision changes what we see
A world for what it is and not for what it can be
Innocence lost, we no longer believe in magical things
Become sceptical, judgmental and no longer dream
We can’t go back, know too much, wouldn’t be the same
So the children need us, to use our brains.
The future, needs us to try to fix or to contain
All the bad , its up to us to make that change.
