For Future Generations
by 4Him

  • The signs are obvious, they are everywhere
    All that we hear about is the gloom and despair Too many would be prophets sayin'
    "It's the end of it all"
    'Cause mother earth can't take much more
    The hammer's gonna fall

    So nature has its needs,
    that's a lesson learned
    But it appears to me
    there are greater concerns
    'Cause we can save the planet
    Thinkin' we will somehow survive
    But father time is calling us
    To save somebody's life, so

    I won't bend and I won't break
    I won't water down my faith
    I won't compromise in a world of desperation
    What has been I cannot change
    But for tomorrow and today
    I must be a light for future generations

    If we could find a way to
    preserve our faith
    So those who follow us
    See the price that was paid
    Then maybe when they question
    What it's gonna take to survive
    They'll find the strength to carry on
    In what we leave behind


    Lookin' in the eyes of the children
    Knowing that tomorrow is at stake
    When the choice is up to them
    Will they have the strength to say

    We won't bend and we won't break
    we won't water down our faith
    We won't compromise in a world of desperation
    What has been we cannot change
    But for tomorrow and today
    We must be a light for future generations
