And you say “We want what’s best for you”
Is that true?
A child freezes out in the rain
Watching his parents’ dead remains
Is this the best for us?
People’s bodies freeze on the streets
They’re dead but they can still feel
The pain and suffering of all the years
But you still want the best for us
A young baby who just came to life
Finds himself at some doorsteps
Not knowing that he has to survive
With someone else other than his parents
Maybe that’s the best for us!
We keep looking for something to give
And underneath the bare sky we lie
Waiting for the best to come
But we know what we should do
Remain silent and not say a word
Accept all that you say and all that you do
Until the day comes when we’re all dead
Just because you want the best for us
