There are desperate times upon us,
There are codes of white and black,
Political resentment and people start to crack.
There's hate and opposition,
There's fumbling dialog,
Yet you sit there and judge me
And you think it makes a difference.

If you think I'm all alone, you are foolishly wrong,
There's an entire army who blindly follows along.
And you happen to be one of them, believe it or not,
Even though you try not to be, we are of the same plague.

The other ways we're taught to fear,
Don't even scratch the surface of the problem here.
I'm not blind, and I'm not scared,
So many crucial factors exist out there,
And we're but one, and they're but two,
And how we come to terms will help us pull through.

Things cannot change too fast, it took us this much time
To reach our current platform and walk this fragile line.
If I thought I'd make a difference, I'd kill myself today,
But so many are like me lost in the fray.

You create your own reality,
And leave mine to me...
