Personnel

Lyrics

We don’t know what we are feeling
but we know we feel it
This year’s children, we can’t take it
that’s why we steal it
Beautiful planet much too damaged
and you know it
Hey, mamas and papas, don’t try to stop us
you’ll only blow it

We’re young and brave
And we don’t behave
But we won’t make the same old mistakes
We’re this year’s children

This year’s children, you tell us to save
but we never had it
This year’s children, we tried to earn,
but you’ve already spent it
You supply it but we don’t buy it
‘cause we can’t afford it
Hey, mamas and papas, why not help us?
Don’t just hoard it

We’re young and brave
And we don’t behave
But we won’t make the same old mistakes
We’re this year’s children

Soon it’ll be our hour
And soon we will have the power
We’ll overcome all that you’ve done
And leave behind a better place
For the future race

‘Cause we’re young and brave
And we don’t behave
But we won’t make the same old mistakes
We’re this year’s children

We’re young and brave
And we don’t behave
But we won’t make the same old mistakes
