Synopsis: From the perspective of John as a young man (lead character/antagonist) and his neglectful parents (while they're off working for their wages) - "Trade before tribe" - John is often abandoned by his parents due to their hectic work schedule and desire for wealth. The effects of neglecting him show up later on throughout the story.

lyrics

John:
Say where's my dear mother, and my old man
Again they have gone from me
John's Parents:
(No) We're always with you, and we will always be
John:
(They say) Study the law's hand, live by the lord's plan
And a valuable life I'll lead
John's Parents:
Then down through the ages, resides your name performing
We're always with you, and we will always be
We're always with you, and we will always be
