I swear I’ve cried a thousand tears
Behind closed doors alone this year
Be smart now, girl, you must stay strong
This sorrow will not last for long
Everyone dreams without sleeping
But waking nightmares can creep in
Breaking the clay you’ve made from dust
Adhering fear to your new cuts(Don’t be afraid of being cut down
This forest is full of a lack of sound
Branches sway, they play to the rhythm
Find your roots before the division of the schism sets in
Mother Earth- she gave you sweet life
From the heavens, took the stars for your eyes
She gave you skin so you could choose to swim
Either way, Father Time’s got your number pinned
To the sins that you have created
Say “Only God can alleviate them! ”
But God’s too busy fighting these wars
Tell me, who’s chosen now? And who should be scorned?
Well, well,
Presidents and Queens alike
Have to say that they fight “The Good Fight”
But as a young person in this day and age
I know not to trust, but I know how to pray (And I swear we’ve cried
A thousand tears
Behind closed doors alone this year
Be smart now children, we must stay strong
This sorrow will not last for long
