They see pain and suffering all around,
And pray to ease the yolk,
I see another pack of noodles,
And just another bottle of Coke.
They see hypocrites and liars,
Fighting for what they know is right,
I see the inside of hotel rooms,
But I can’t sleep throughout the night.
They see riots in the streets,
Fires burning down the town,
I see one more day of playtime,
One more day without a frown.
They see fear in each other’s eyes,
Threats of death to make them scared,
I see the inside of my eyelids,
Sleeping peacefully unaware.
