lyrics

we're the lost generation caught in a promise of tomorrow
knowing yesterdays child has still not grown
we'll take our children by the hand
with their wisdom try to save this land
from perishing beneath the hand of man

she said, "don't worry about the big picture tonight,
"we're going to paint just a small bit right
"and it'll shine as an example for the rest!"
she said, "we're children too when the nighttime falls
"and the answers lie in those who love"
i heard all this and she never uttered a sound!

eloquently silent, she said everything i needed to hope

one day this will all be ours
or so the promise goes

our children are going to grow up strong
they'll find their own sense of right and wrong
we'll educate them to stand up tall as their morning shadow shrinks
reduced and silent we'll stand by and watch them flourish
and guide them if they ever should get lost

she said, "don't worry about the future tonight,
"we're going to paint just a small bit right
"and it'll shine as an example for the rest!"
she said, "we're children too when the nighttime falls
"and the answers lie in those who love"
the peter pan generation lives on in us

one day this will all be ours
or so the promise goes

we need to teach the future generations to do better than we've done
for some day this will all be theirs
