This one is for Ghana...
and Romania...

V1:
Taking a sunny stroll down the streets of Accra
Ask the beautiful youth "what's the matter?"
"Oh bra the system hard give my mama and tata"
"So I dey help by selling some ice water"
I take a gulp of the liquid and I think
This child here can't even afford this drink
I offer her some but she declines and smiles
her dusty feet tell me they have walked many miles
I ought to buy the rest of the water but she refuses says it's strange and she don't want my change
She's got pride like a family of lions
Hard work not charity will be relied on
Give thanks for her parents raised her well
With that cool head one day she will freeze this hell...freeze this hell

HK: 2X
How do we make it?
Living life on the streets
I just can't take it
Blisters from the concrete
Why do most fake it?
Doing what they do to eat
Babylon I break it
Shackles off my brain, hands, and feet

V2:
Driving late night through the streets of Ploiesti
I see packs of children selling their flesh
Why you doing this? "Dece faceti asa?"
"Asa este" we have no choice in the matter
Do your parents know what you are up to?
Our parents dropped us off to make money for food
And they are close by, watching crying, hoping,
Other doors could be open
Barely coping...barely coping...barely coping
Is there no healing, for this helpless feeling?
My stomach is reeling
With what kind of devil are we dealing?
I fight to bring back the souls it is stealing...souls it is stealing...

HK: 2X

V3:
My people in third worlds, they are all suffering.
Struggling, hungry, living day to day just...trying to survive.
Cuz the governments collect taxes on them to pay IMF debts.
Money that was lent by the IMF to dictators who use the money
for thier own personal pleasures. Yet the people suffer.
And why we keep putting these corrupt leaders in power I don't even know.

HK: 2X
