Story Of The Year – The Children Sing lyrics

The future decides the roles we play
And struggles to sell the past away
The afterthought is staring back on better days
Cause our daughters and sons will live to pay
For every mistake that we have made
For every conviction we've betrayed
Let the children sing

Don't take this
Don't take this world away from me

So are we condemned to waste away
An answer that on time portrays
A question we'll ask ourselves from here to eternity
And will it be worth the price they'll pay
For living their lives in our remains
So how do you think we will explain
When the children sing

Don't take this
Don't take the world away from me

Can we find a way
To face today
With an eye on the things to come
Cause mistakes we've made
Bring our decay
And our chance to make a difference will be gone
So this is the price they'll pay
For living in our remains
Just listen as the children sing
