The Lyrics Are Below

 

NOT THE ONE

I'm not the one who made the world what it is today

I'm not the one who caused the problems started long ago

But now I deal with all the consequences that troubles our times

I carry on and never once have even questioned why

 

I'm innocent

But the wieght of the world is on my shoulders

I'm innocent

But the battles started are far from over

 

We're not the ones who leave the homeless in the streets at night

We're not the ones who've kept minorities and women down

Still we grow and then the problems they become our own

We carry on without even realizing why

 

CHORUS

We're innocent

But the weight of the world is on our shoulders

We're innocent

But the battles left us are far from over

 

We're not the ones whose pollution balcked our skies

And ruined the streams

We're not the ones who made the nuclear bombs

That threaten our lives

We're not the ones who let the children starve in faraway lands

We're not the ones who made the streets unsafe to walk at night

 

And even if we try and not become so overwhelmed

And if we make some contribution to the plight we see

Still our descendents will inherit our mistakes of today

They'll suffer just the same as we and never wonder why
