so it does matter

the answer that comes is simple and plain
we're not to do things that cause trouble
the punishments then will be double
we've learned to come in from the rain
though when we see others in trauma and pain
we want to unpile all the trash and the rubble
but don't want to come out of our safety bubble
because our hearts won't take the strain
there's nothing to do with an answer like this
but shrug and go on with everyday life
and not say a thing that would start a new war
success is a matter of hit or of miss
the world is a story of horror and strife
and we've seen everything once before
