One Life In Asia (Ivory Tower)

People in the downtown streets Selling food and unusual things Drinking water eater rice A young boy sitting with his mother Silently endures the day Bothers making it alright But look in his eyes All the hidden cries He doesn't know the reason why One life in Asia Every day short on food Right after birth reaching childhoods end One life in Asia Social disease, endless screams Lost in decadence Hunger and pain is all they gain Filled up with fright and out of might Never seen the light Dependent on help One life in Asia Every day short on food Right after birth reaching childhoods end One life in Asia Are we worthly? Full of blindness? A child around the corner is crying Slowly dying, crying, slowly dying An old man in the house of mud Smoking an cigarett A remaining piece of luck A young girl searching for safety Hope she'll realize She's selling her heart But look in his eyes All the hidden cries He doesn't know the reason why
