Don't you know
That it's true
That for me
And for you
The world is a ghetto
No matter where or who we are in the world, everyone suffers their own pains, whether through violence, poverty, emotional struggle, or an array of other crises.
The image of the ghetto is used here as a metaphor for universal strife.
