Yeasayer – The Children lyrics

We are children
And we'll give you trouble
If we don't like what you're doing
And we think that it is wrong.
Now we're satisfied,
But when we're not...
We are taking lives
And making drones.

The world that came from us,
It makes the child.
Da da da da da
Da da da da da.

We are children,
Not the youth,
Not kids.
It's not sound to pretend,
My friend,
This might just be the end.
Shadow life that sits outside your door
We live inside your walls
And leak through floors.

The world that came from us,
It makes the child.
Da da da da da
Da da da da da.
