    but when i saw this lyric, i saw something that was in his childhood. maybe yes, maybe no.

    he cannot do something like the other normal child do in his childhood.. so sad...

    What I know about Michael is that he lived a hard life and he never had a normal childhood like all of the other kids did, so i feel bad that he had to live like that because his father Joe Jackson was very hard on him ill name somethings he did to him

    1. he whipped him
    2. he was hard on him
    3. and in the movie Michael as a kid didnt want to do the concerts but his father forced him to do them and the other thing is is that he and his brothers never slept and i'm sure Kathrine was really close to divorcing Joe so let me know what you guys think and if you wanna get ahold of me more privately about this i will give out my contact info

    Michael Jackson is saying that he never got his childhood soort of an explanation. Long Live MJ

    This song touches my heart whenever I listen to it, and takes me back to the time I was a child and the magic and innocence of that time. Michael gave us his childhood, so we could have one. Thanks Mike:)

    I like this song. It is, as Michael himself once put it, very autobiographical. :) And the "pirates" part of the lyrics reminds me of Peter Pan (and I'm sure MJ would've loved the 2003 film Peter Pan as well as pretending he was a pirate himself at his Neverland Ranch). The "kings on the throne" part reminds me of King Solomon in the Bible, whose wisdom I often see in the book of Proverbs in the Old Testament; also, Michael once said that he read the Bible whenever he got the chance, and I'm sure that he read about King Solomon as well.

    Kudos to MJ for writing such a beautiful and inspiring song. :)

    Lyrics are quite easy to interpret here. It's about MJ's childhood and explaining how it was different and he talks about how he was/is judged.
