"Forgotten Children" as written by David Jost, Dave Roth, Patrick Benzner, Bill Kaulitz, Peter Hoffmann and Rebecca Roth....
Just a normal day
Streets turn into graves
Traces have been removed
The search was disapproved
So cold the night
The weak ones lose the fight
Too many of them out there
No one seems to care

Lost and so alone
Born but never known
Left all on their own
Forgotten children
We'll never hear a name
They carry all the blame
Too young to break the chains
Forgotten children

[Chorus]
They see, they feel, believe
Just like we do
They're laughing, and crying
Wanna live here
Like me and you

Eyes without light
Too tired of good-byes
Never felt embraced
And frightened of every face
A life in disguise
Hope forever died

Lost and so alone
Born but never known
Left all on their own
Forgotten children
We'll never hear a name
They carry all the blame
Too young to break the chains
Forgotten children

[Chorus]

It shouldn't really be that way
It shouldn't really be that way

We see, we feel, believe
Just like you
We're laughing and crying
Wanna live here
We see, we feel, believe
Just like you
We're laughing and crying
Wanna live here
Just like you

    General CommentThis song... like Bill said in an interview, is about children who are forgotten by their family. They're either in orphanages or they are at home but living by themselves. Their parents don't care, and he sings that it shouldn't be like that, and that we kids have voices and feelings of our own and that we deserve to be listened to.
    I know what it's like to feel like that, my parents are... pfft. They are making my life misery. My dad cant even remember my name, and he named me.

    General CommentThis song is kinda like a wake up call to the people who think life is easy when your a kid.
    sometimes life is worse when your a kid.

    General CommentI think this is about developing world poverty/genoside/war, and how kids are especially the vicims because they are the weak ones. "The search was disapproved" reminds me of an archaeologist wanting permission to excavate a site but not being allowed. Their voices can never be heard because they died to tragicallly and we are never given permission tofind out what happenned and tell their stories to the world.

    General Commenti wish this song was about what aligater said, but i doubt tokio hotel would write about poverty, genocide or war.

    General CommentI once thought that it was about how hard teenage life is in this generation... at the start they say "They see, They feel, believe just like we do" but near the end, they say that but changing They to We, and children does not only state people from 0 to 12 years old, also to a group to sons and daughters, so it could be that they are talking about that and how teens when their parents don't understand them feel forgotten, abandoned, etc.
