Another Day In Paradise Lyrics

"Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me?"

He walks on, doesn't look back
He pretends he can't hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street

    The song talks about a big social problem that is about the people that live on the street called of "beggars" and how the society see them, pretending that these people don´t exist and nothing have been done about the problem, nobody can help them.

    In the US there are more homeless ppl due to the fact that they are mentally unstable. People have lost there morality due to materialism. People in deed have more value than any object on earth. The Potus sadly only cares about himself and will not tend to the issue

    The lyrics in the very first stanza shows how in the society today, people are very selfish and tend to worry only about themselves.
