Children of Unfriendly World
Hopefully you grow up to adulthood,
Later you will know the correct whatever this world,
Now you only know enough to play and play, Oh El! The world's the same as playing.
If I remember about the children in this old world,
Their fate may be not as good as El.
Look! Listen! Feel!
Children really innocent, even make mistakes,
Look! There are elementary school children, who are already good in smoking,
Listen! They are listening adult songs, watching adult movies,
Other side, they are already familiar with 'going out', drugs, singing beggar, even criminal acts,
Remember! Children really innocent, even make mistakes.
In other hand, children being abused, discarded, war victims, killed, courier even sex slaves,
What a pity their fate, not as good as EL.
I don’t know! On the corner of where in the world that still friendly to children,
At home, they hurt, beaten, shackled,
In school, they are punished, abused,
In the playground, they are under surveillance, lured, coerced, abducted,
Moreover on the streets, I could not call them.
Love is really expensive,
But fear and trauma are 'priceless',
In much lot along the way, who cares?
Kids! This world is not friendly to you, I hope your fate as well as El.
