Lyrics

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 consequence that troubles our times
I carry on and never once have even questioned why

Yeah, yeah, I'm innocent
Weight of the world is on my shoulders
Yeah, yeah, I'm innocent
Battles started are far from over, yeah, oh

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

Yeah, yeah, we're innocent
Weight of the world is on our shoulders
Yeah, yeah, we're innocent
Battles left are far from over, yeah, oh

Yeah, yeah, we're innocent
Weight of the world is on our shoulders
Yeah, yeah, we're innocent
Battles left are far from over, yeah, oh

Yeah, yeah, we're innocent
Weight of the world is on our shoulders
Yeah, yeah, we're innocent
Battles left are far from over, yeah, oh

We're not the ones whose pollution blackened our skies and ruined our dreams
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 made some contribution to the plight we see
Still our descendants will inherit our mistakes of today
They'll suffer just the same as we and never wonder why
