I'm so hungry I'm in pain
And the water I drink is brown with dirt
My older brother looks after me because my parents are gone
Why do I have to work for pennies a day?
Little child it is because your country is poor
Little child the water you drink is like poisen
Killing from the inside
You work everyday because it's all you can do
I feel dirty, unworthy of life
I do things most sixteen year olds make faces at
I work for big cash, one night stand
How did I get into this?
Young girl you must feel trapped
No one shows you love or care
How did you get into this?
No one gives a damn
I've got bruises here
And I've aches and pains there
Why does Daddy hit me?
I try and make him happy
Young girl how bad are the bruises?
Probably not as bad as the one in your heart
You don't understand why he hates you
He'll never be content with you
Why is the world so cruel?
Why are children in pain?
In they're hearts and souls
They lack basic love.
Go ahead and turn and look the other way
Pretend you don't see they're internal agony
Pretend you can't help
Why is it no one bothers to ask?
