American children are at high risk to be trafficked into the sex trade.

Money said,
come see the other side
Money said,
I promise a new life
Money said,
come breathe in the new skies

Just like all the other girls
she knew her future
She could see it in the eyes of her mother

So, when she heard Money say,
come see the other side,
she knew that this
was her one chance to fly

She thought for a moment
“It’s too good to be true,”
but she knew that it needed to be
She wasn’t gonna let poverty
chain up her hands and feet

Money said and Money promised
everything she needed in life

Money said,
come see the other side
Money said,
I promise a new life
Money said,
come breathe in the new skies

And that’s when she stepped over the line
She gave her hand and said good bye

She left singing,
“take me to the other side.”

Little did she know that Money lies
Little did she know that Money is a man
Little did she know…

A weeks ride from home
and she wasn’t sure
where she was anymore,
but she trusted Money
because his lips were made of honey
and golden promises for tomorrow

She made it to the other side,
but there was nothing Money promised
and everything he didn’t

In a dark room,
with chained feet,
she looked like eve,
but she had just left Eden

No-where to go
No-way to run
The darkness fell
on her that night
and she found out that Money lies.
