Parralox - What About You


What About You

Written by Jaime Jimenez, Mary-Anne Mercuri, John von Ahlen

Verse 1
We build pyramids that nearly touch the sky
We fly so high and then we fall down
(we fall down)We're frightened of the unknown
Frightened of the things we've never seen before
We cry, we laugh, we love, we hate
We hope to learn from our mistakes

What about you?
Are you thinking of us too?
What about you?
Do you feel the same way too?
What about you, you, you or you?
What about you, you, you or you?

Verse 2
People homeless in the streets
And we close our eyes and walk straight by
Children they're hungry
But all we give them is an empty smile Nations in despair, we say we want to help
But do we really care, so we declare war instead
(they're dying, who's crying, we're dying)
And spread confusion everywhere
