about

A song about the importance of children and the associated responsibility to care for them.

lyrics

(Love, Time, Think, Act)

Sentimentally I watch some happy kids
On a playground, I’m using all my wits
To focus on this story full of culprits
Who encourage many children just to break their habits
Like rabbits from animal testing farms, oh, these maggots,
They’re constantly ruining their credits,
But with some pay strips,
changin digits, make this legit,
make it fit, it’s a crime, they knew it,
but all they will do
is feeding innocent children with some more poo-stew.

It’s a life like that, that I’ll be sparing you.
It’s a life like that, that I won’t put you through.

First faith, second knowledge.
Third hope, fourth fear.
If these are your merits you’re missing all the dear
You could give, if your stiff cliff
Of a heart would be more than a sniff
Where is your love? This more than negative.
It’s impatient and so unfair
To raise a kid like a teddy bear
With way too much blonde hair causing way too much despair.

They are still under fire
like second to none.
The message is so dire:
They’re not the only suffering ones.
Watching goals set higher
Imperfection makes my day
The message is so dire:
These kids are not so far away.

Fertilized just by religion, media and their apathy
This song should remind them to free responsibility.

It’s a life like that, that I’ll be sparing you.
It’s a life like that, that I won’t want you to be put through.

Thinking of Kongo, Zimbabwe or even Iraq
It makes me sick to know that there are kids on attack
As small soldiers, their whole life in a backpack
and years later nothing more than an emotional wreck.

And then they march in lines,
no government confines
this steadily decline,
cuz everyone here’s fine.

They are still under fire
like second to none.
The message is so dire:
They are the most suffering ones.
Watching goals set higher
Imperfection makes my day
The message is so dire:
These kids are simply far away.

So far away!

First: love, second: time.
Third: think, fourth: act.
Second to none, they’re second to none.

These kids are simply far away.
We close our eyes day by day.
Problem human society
Can’t be solved by simply
Swallowing compassion!
