Reaching for the end
The light at the tunnel
I don’t know if I should do this
Take this chance

Risk everything
My heart or what’s left of it
Into this
Any given moment
It could end
Left as a hash tag

They are watching
Surrounded by the enemy
And it’s not even them
The blue eyes and pale skin
No it’s my own kind
Those who stay stuck in Sambo
Lost in the stereotypes

Wake up!

I have to try
Because who will?
Not Al, or Jesse
Malcolm and Martin can’t
The torch has been passed
It’s time for a change
