You, who are on the road
Must have a code that you can live by
And so, become yourself
Because the past is just a goodbye

Teach your children well
Their father’s hell did slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picked, the one you’ll know by

Don't you ever ask them why
If they told you, you would cry
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you

And you (can you hear)
Of tender years (and do you care)
Can’t know the fears (and can you see)
That your elders grew by (we must be free)
And so, please help (to teach your children)
Them with your youth (what you believe in)
They seek the truth (make a world)
Before they can die (that we can live in)

Teach your parents well
Their children’s hell will slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picked, the one you’ll know by

Don’t you ever ask them why
If they told you, you wil cry
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you
