Maximo park - Risk to exist

Ever felt like you're going nowhere, and you need a little help?
I felt the same way in my life, that's when your friends improve the hand you're dealt
Now if we extend the situation
To a broad one instead of the self
How can we not extend a hand into the perilous waters of hell?

Throw your arms around me
Before the waves all swallow me
Where's your empathy?
Put your arms around me
I've come too far and the ocean's deep
I cannot breathe

Now I'm no expert but a cursory reading of the facts say you reap what you sow
And the expert colonizers we became, caused enough hurt to eat up the soul
And if we're proud of the things we have, shouldn't others want to share as well?
Now the regimes that we propped up descended into a living hell

Throw your arms around me
Before the waves all swallow me
Find some empathy
Put your arms around me
I've come too far and the ocean's deep
I cannot breathe


It's a risk just to exist
As we emerge into the light
It's a risk just to exist
I'm so glad to be alive

The talk shows talk
But nothing gets done
Who wants to be responsible for Europe's biggest son?
Show some responsibility

Throw your arms around me
Before the waves all swallow me
Find some empathy
Put your arms around me
I've come too far and the ocean's deep
I cannot breathe

It's a risk just to exist
As we emerge into the light
It's a risk just to exist
I'm so glad to be alive
Oh it's a risk just to exist
I'm so glad to be alive
It's a risk just to exist
As we emerge into the light
