You're through gestation so welcome to the world 
We've still got vacancies just waiting to be filled 
We're still delivering ten thousand souls a day
And disproportionately packing them away 

The starving of the multitudes and the feeding of the few
We're only humanoid there's nothing we can do
You must do something or we'll all go up in smoke 
We'd like to help but we're afraid of losing votes 

They never listen to you
They never listen to your cries 
We're not progressing we're only marking time
You're on your own 

 Think of your children  Think of your children 
Are they welcome to the world? 

If every Chinaman jumped up and down in sync
Then California would be sucked into the drink 
You've all got bodies and a few of you got minds 
We'd like to juse them but we never get the time 

 Though man's achievements are a credit to us all
How come we're stading with our backs against the wall?
One thousand congressmen assemble every day
They'll send us packing on a dreadlock holiday 

They'll never listen to you
They'll never listen to your cries 
They'll keep on talking and wasting precious time
You're on your own 

 Think of your children  Think of your children 
Look to your children 
They're only children 
Are they welcome to the world?
