And if a kid breaks in a school
And no one around chooses to hear
Do they make a sound?
This is a reference to an old philosophical question, “If a tree falls in a forest and there is no one around to hear, does it make a sound?
Metaphorically, if something negative is happening to a kid and nobody does anything about it, will his problems go unknown?
