(Child) Hello father, hello mother;
Please don't be mad at me; I will try harder,
(Mother) That's not enough

of a world that's not so cold
Suffer the causes of my personal misery
my freedom, my dreams,

Don't blame me for things I didn't do
please stop your screaming, and love me
Speak of love while you've ruined

to fantasize of a world
And free to be
(Contemplative) Sinner or righteous,
Can you condemn it
Or accuse yourself if the sentence is your life?
(Child) Hello father, hello mother;
I just wanted someone who'd hold me and listen,
(Mother) Only fantasies?
I would still have my beauty,
the independent me
(Contemplative) Our course in life is a path we must take alone
only you, so the sins we commit are the struggles within

knowing that your choice hurt someone
(Father) Once we had a life and now we have you
I'll leave you both if I must give up my dreams
I won't be chained because of this
The sins of all, the sinner in me
If my ideals are sins
Then I shall stay a sinner
(Child) I can be free

the line is so thin
Can you be the one to judge it all
