​Child Of Today

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album In The Spirit Of The Times (1985) and on the album Songs From A Troubled World (2006).

Child of today is it right what we say
Is it all going fine or is it all in a steady decline
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
The changing roles within the family
The cold apartments and the warm TV
Are you old before your time?
Child of today do we know what you play
Or do you find it's outa sight and out of mind
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
The changing values of society
It's hard to find a place where you should be
Are you old before your time?

Are you old before your time
With the weight upon your mind
Of knowing what it is you're meant to be?
Are there questions there inside
When you're taken by the tide
And the current wants to hold you, yet be free?

Child of today did it all slip away
Or was it just left behind in a world
Of a different kind
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
The changing patterns of society
It's hard to find a place where you should be
Are you old before your time?

Do you ever get that feeling
When you're caught up on the tide
That the current wants to hold you yet be free
Do you ever get the feeling
As you're taken on your ride
That we just can't see the forest for the trees?

Child of today is it right what we say
Is it all going fine
Or is it all In a steady decline
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
The changing roles within the family
The cold apartments and the warm TV
Are you old before your time?
