Wall to wall
Ceiling to floor
Ignore the noise outside the door
Dead in the water
Dead in the streets
Dead in the dirt’s not dead to me.
You think the one that held you down
Will turn face and pull you out?
How many lives are you willing to burn
Before you learn:
We were lost before we were forgotten
We were sold before we were born
Am I as ugly as I feel?
Am I as bad as I say?
The more I ache, the more I change
The more I start to think I can’t stop yet.
A broken mirror in a broken frame
The same lies I heard yesterday
This is the part of my history
That I will work to fix for the rest of my life
And I know you’re just wasting my time
It’s not about being better
It’s about rising above
Because the world won’t care if we lose sight
No one will see us if we fall behind.
