No safe zone no cure and no protection
No symptoms define the signs of an infection
No vaccines, remedies, and no corrections

Meaning

Depression: Everyone, or nearly everyone, deals with depression. Depression is the elephant in every room, and no one wants to deal with it. What adds to the horror of this ailment is that there’s no provenly effective way to deal with it that doesn’t risk relapse, barbaric side-effects, or a loss of personality.

For HIV- it is an incurable disease, once you get it, you got it. The tough part here is that it isn’t like you can look at someone and immediately determine they have HIV.

Streets- Anyone in the world can fall victim to the temptations of the Streets. She is known for her false promises, and has gotten the better of many men throughout history. Also, many people are tempted by the actual streets, like the drug game, and can’t get out.

Ignorance/Confusion- Dangerous and confusing ideas are being spread by the government. No one really knows what is true and what is being fed to them.
