    We must become
    See where we're coming from
    We must break from this jam
    Be real us, you, me, i am
    Straining from the weight
    Of centuries of hate
    Don't let it overcome and break you
    Stand up and be true
    To your gifts of grace
    The beauty of your body and face
    Reflecting the hidden soul
    Your purpose and the role
    That have been stolen away
    Trying to bring you to a day
    Of no-thing and no-bo-dy
    Hoping that you'll never see
    Who you are and what you've got
    Filling you up with pain and doubt
    So when you come alive it's in pains
    Locked in the beast's belly in chains
    With hardly anything that resembles hope
    Hold on, make maximum efforts to cope
    Til' we can seize our destiny
    And again become what we should be​
