Losing my control.
Here it is, the day I have to go.
Just sit beside me,
I can't let this show.
How sick I feel to leave you so alone.
God, I'm terrified.

We've lost respect for decency,
When one can turn our world into an ant pile.
We run circles, no direction do I see.
The dust has blinded you, the dust has blinded me.

I kissed her on the cheek,
And then I waved goodbye.
She had the saddest look I've seen in years,
A kangaroo cry.
A warm pathetic ocean flow we have to live by,
We have to live by,
Because we have to live.

And you choose to break our families.
Tell me you've used all precautions known,
And I'll stand beside the ones who stood alone.
How long will we have to sing until you finally bring
Our sons, our daughters home?
We'll let the prayers start healing, what time's been stealing.

We only want to feel as close as we can be.
Use hands for holding on to your precious family.
Just believe in all who shine,
The light to help you see,
'Cause if I believe in you, will you believe in me?

So, I kissed her on the cheek,
And then I waved goodbye.
She had the saddest look I've seen in years,
A kangaroo cry.
A warm pathetic ocean flow we have to live by,
We have to live by,
Because we have to live.

You choose to break our families.
Tell me you've used all precautions known,
And I'll stand beside the ones who stood alone.
How long will we have to sing until you finally bring
Our sons, our daughters home?
We'll let the prayers start healing, what time's been stealing.
Been stealing.

Oh!
Keep hanging on.
Keep hanging on.
Keep hanging on.
Keep hanging on.

We'll let the prayers start healing, what time's been stealing.
Start healing.
Start healing.

    He is singing about his daughter and the judicial system not giving as many rights to the fathers. A baby kangaroo cries out one giant cry when it leave the mother pouch and then the mother will always know where her baby is by the sound of the cry.

    I believe it is about our men and women fighting over seas. I can't even fathom what that must feel like having a loved one like that leave and wonder if they're safe or not. God bless and i do hope they return safely.

    I think that kangaroo cry represents the men and women fighting over seas. Loved ones are left behind and are waiting for the day that they return home
