Paying it forward
Does it really work in the real world?
It’s a great concept
helping someone else
instead of repaying the favor to the person who helped you

Can it really work in the real world?
Most people won’t do anything for you
unless they get something in return

In an ideal world
we would all help those in need
in an ideal world
we wouldn’t live based on greed

But we don’t live in an ideal world
in this world, no one gets something for nothing
those with nothing to give are ground to dust
