  • This is who we are
    This is what I am
    We have nowhere else to go
    Divided we will stand

    We are the ugly
    Beaten and torn
    Brooding with power and ready for more
    We are the hungry
    Sick of this world
    Of robbers of thieving
    Of vultures unfurled

    We have been left on our own
    Be all the lost longing for home
    We are the unwanted lives
    Strung out and angry the deprived

    We are the young
    And young at heart
    The strong and the brave that are destined to start
    We are the change
    The world needs to see
    Look in our eyes and see our belief

    This is who we are
    This is what I am
    We have nowhere else to go
    Divided we will stand

    We are the broken
    Meant to be left
    Damaged and headless like dolls in a chest
    We are the future
    Seeds that you've sown
    In dirt that won't ever grow turns now to stone

    We have been hung out to dry
    We are the drunken
    We are the high
    We despise this human race
    Look in our eyes and sell your disgrace

    This is who we are
    This is what I am
    We have nowhere else to go
    Divided we will stand

    Dream

    Into glory we will ride
    Be unbridled in determination burn the seasons
    Into glory we will ride
    Be unbridled in determination
    Burn the seasons

    We are the savage
    Meant to be brought to justice
    To be thrown in jail and left to rot
    We are the other American dream
    Whose characters fight for their lives
    And they scream

    We have been left disavowed
    Those of the black
    Not of the shroud
    We won't hear religious lies
    Their God has left us to die

    This is who we are
    This is what I am
    We have nowhere else to go
    Divided we will stand
    This is who we are
    This is what I am
    We have nowhere else to go
    Divided we will stand Writer/s: ROBERT CONRAD FLYNN
