♫♪  Patrick Shiroishi - “子供の寂しさが聞こえるか?”

Somewhere, there’s an ocean of refugee children’s tears.
Mean old xenophobes can’t resist the urge to dive in.
For a time some of them enjoy a nice swim
But all inevitably drown.

Dead kids watch from the shore somewhere
Not from malice nor anger nor spite
Nor for a hatefully imagined fright
Just so somone’s around.

Do you see the world from within or without?
“Can you hear the loneliness of a child?”

Patrick Shiroishi’s upcoming tape, 烏の涙 is out March 29 on American Damage. Its first single, “子供の寂しさが聞こえるか?” premieres below.
