honestly, i hadn’t ever wished
to grow up
grownups were old
but nowadays my innocence
has gone
i had faith, hope
in what i am not sure
in that the world at heart is right?

no clue as to what was wrong, and why
i shouldn’t forgive all the sinners
don’t trust all the men with nine o’clock
shadows, advice from those
who were bitter
and sad

what a world
a wonderful
world we live in
what times

just because they advanced us
will we really be looking back at
these times with pride, only memories
of where, when, who was by our side.
