Today is filled with anger
fueled with hidden hate
scared of being outcast
afraid of common fate
Today is built on tragedies

children bred with ruthlessness
because no one at home cares
Tonight I lay my head down

But 2morrow I c change
a chance 2 build a new
Built on spirit intent of Heart

based on truth
and tomorrow I wake with second wind
and strong because of pride
2 know I fought with all my heart 2 keep my
dream alive
