The deep city shadows harbor our fate
Collectively still, lying in wait.
Oppression is the barrier we seek to climb,
Left to present the cost, every monumental time.
Our self-worth liquidated to benefit the state
Reaping the benefits of their discriminatory ways.
These toxic sins consume our souls
Years, upon years is what we’ve been told.
To confess our imperfections is the only way
To be freed of our sickening and immoral ways.
Resilience is the key in changing the world
Empowering it, for you and for me.
A light upon shadows
We shine strong
A collective partnership
We have strived for so long.
Lamps, ladders and chains are our tools for change.
Reducing the wall to rubble, without any shame.
To embrace love is to cradle creativity
The creativity to love anyone within all certainty.
Soulful liberation is ours to gain,
Considered we are all virtually the same.
Socially constructed barriers aside
We have found or feet and have learned to climb
Casting light upon darkness, shedding light upon rights
We will continue to fight for equal human rights.
