When I Was One

when i was one
it was the year of the gun
we were still fighting a war that could never be won
when i was one

when I was one
we lost King in April
in June another Kennedy son
burning Watts blotted out the sun
when i was one

when i was one
it was the year of the gun
we’re still fighting battles that were begun
when i was one

when i was one
i was born into a world coming undone
now it seems every year is a rerun
of the one
when i was one
