I remember how I used to feel
Things just seemed so sweet
Now they don't
And it's so hard to see
I remember how I used to be
Now it's all just changed
And I'm cold in the grave
It's like I won't ever be the same, no
Now I'm alone

But I used to have it all
But now, I'm slipping and I'm falling down
Them days seem so close
But somehow they've gone so far away

See something just ain't right
See your government kill others
For a wage that's how we waste life
I bleed, you bleed, we bleed together
Getting lost up in the system
That teaches us to be separate
Easier and ignorant when we're locked up in sections
As one, we're strong, hold on, never let up
I'm fed up living in this world
Where they tell us we're nothing
Without money to show and to represent us
But damn my skin color
Cause we're still brothers and sisters
Don't let them tell you any different.
I'm still trapped in this system
I'm locked in this prison
We're still trapped in this system
I'm locked in this prison

But I used to have it all
But now, I'm slipping and I'm falling down
Them days seem so close
But somehow they've gone so far away
[X3]
