    I have seen the things
    In this world that tare you down
    I know what it feels like
    TO see and feel like
    You don't belong right
    Where you are
    It hurts my heart to
    Hear it in your voice when you start to cry
    I don't see pain in those eyes
    I see fire
    A fire that burns
    And a soul that yearns
    To set the world ablaze
    With a phenomenal haze
    Of knowledge and power
    the hearts that beats stronger
    Every Hour
    I see in you the strength of the nations
    Our nations groomed from
    Another man's hatred
    Of the soul you posess
    Not the depth of your darkness
    As I stare at you in this reflection I
    See all of life's lesson taught in your eyes
    And when the world takes you on
    You are much more than head strong
    You are the truth that was passed
    And the future your ancestors
    Hoped would last
    And when they speak to you in your dreams you
    tell them
    Yes the fire burns

    And yet the fire burns on, when it becomes a forest fire, and it burns all the trash...and the smoke blows away...
    We'll still be here.
