Revolution in their minds the children start to march
And all the hate that's in their hearts
And told just what to do
And love comes flowing through, yeah
Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear?

Listen to what I say
Spread the words today
Or you children of today are children of the grave, yeah
(Children of the grave)
