Cries For Help

A man dies the most tragic death of murder.
It's in the news paper one day, and not one cop is looking for the murderer.
And now his 5 year old daughter is without a daddy.

Everyone knows when posers are posing.
And everyone knows when stoners are stoned.
So why doesn't everyone know when someone cries for help.

Everyone in this world is too self-absorbed in the perfect look to realize that there was a baby girl that was just kidnapped.
And when the family asks for help to find their daughter we turn our heads.
3 years later they still haven't found their baby girl. (all hope is lost)

Everyone knows when posers are posing.
And everyone knows when stoners are stoned.
So why doesn't everyone know when someone cries for help.

Another teenage girl gets taken advantage of.
She tells her parents, they don't believe her.
Another criminal gets away with the most disgusting crime.

Everyone knows when posers are posing.
And everone knows when stoners are stoned.
So why doesn't everone know when someone cries for help.
