Union Songs

Let's Be Real

- [play]

A song by Tetsuro Tanaka ©Tetsuro Tanaka

You accepted a transfer order for the family you love.
You told a lie to your self.

Is it true your broken family is happy?
broken family is happy?
Let's be more real

Let's be human.
You are more tender.
You are stronger.

You said, We can't live if you are too honest.
You stood on the harassing side.
Are there true friends of yours at work?
true friends at work?

You said, That's not my concern.
You pretend to ignore the harassment.
Can you show your behavior to your children? to your children?

You give up your own life by yielding to the powerful.
Do you know?
People can live more humanly only by struggling.
