Fighter


We open our eyes to a new day,

Go out to the world to have our say.

We fight the battles of awakening dreams.

No way to keep silent our ferocious screams.

Our hard work is ignored by the powers above,

Thrown out in the wind like beaten down love.

We cry while we fall, feeling defeat –

Tears flooding the spaces of our cracked feet.

We will not accept this – escape now.

For our rights, we’ll continue to plough.

They’ll see us up high, living in light.

No bringing us down without a fight.

Stand up for yourself & be proud.

Shout out to make your voice loud.

They cannot destroy a masterpiece.

Feel the steel chain around your body release.
