By: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Album: Essential Mary Chapin Carpenter
This song is about generations seeing social issues from different lenses.
When we were young, we pledged allegiance every morning of our lives
The classroom rang with children's voices under teacher's watchful eye
We learned about the world around us at our desks and at dinnertime
Reminded of the starving children, we cleaned our plates with guilty minds
