Innocence is lost — not when taught
“You’re born a sinner!”
That it’s a fact and you shouldn’t act
like that to be a winner
It’s lost about the time when taught
that Santa is a lie
The Easter Bunny, Superman…
and Jesus had to die?
Who taught the children fantasies?
Their dreams would not come true
Who’ll represent the innocent
when experience makes them blue?
They’ll find they have to love themselves
and in their hearts believe
You’re innocence is all you take
from this world we all must leave
