We told them that we needed houses
Our government responded by pulling down the ones we had.

We told them that we could barely meet up with the prices of foodstuffs in the markets
They responded by increasing the common foodstuffs we could afford.

We told them that we needed jobs
Our government responded by closing the few companies with their policies.

We told them that we needed a father to watch over us
Our President left us for other places.

We told them to help our education from falling
Our Government responded by putting it in the grave.

We told our government to help us become selfless
They told us that selfishness is the way forward.
