Drive-by Truckers – Babies In Cages Lyrics

The world wakes up this morning, I’m sorry for the news
Wrapped up in a tinfoil blanket without any shoes
Babies in cages

I’m sorry to my children, I’m sorry what they see
I’m sorry for the world that they’ll inherit from me
Babies in cages

And are we so divided that we can’t at least agree
This ain’t the country that our granddads fought for us to be?
Babies in cages

Surf’s up in the cities where the next wars will be fought
I’m sorry we’ve forgotten every word that we’ve been taught

Babies in cages

I bang my head against it, smash guitars, and scream and shout
Standing on the beach watching the tide go out
Babies in cages

And standing in the darkness to answer for our sins
Children changing each other’s diapers in a pen
Babies in cages

Look down from the heavens as we calculate the cost
Our souls cry out for the better angels we have lost

Look down from the heavens as we calculate the cost
Our souls cry out for the better angels we have lost
