Born out of nothing
Unknowing of joy or sorrow
How they have always come
Children of tomorrow

Coming to make their claims
Which hold all joys and sorrows
See their sons and daughters there

Looking for a chance to take
While finding only one to borrow
Driving memory and fate deep beneath the waves
For those children of tomorrow

Now childs of the earth may bring nightmares
But others may come with their dreams that aren't so hollow
But haven't we all been fed on those dreams
Of those children of tomorrow

Now I was not born yesterday
And I may not be born tomorrow
But haven't we all been born from
Those children of tomorrow
