Step into the light
Away from the darkness
Step back from the hatred
Don’t stand with the heartless.

Too many face fear
Each day, everyday
They’re tortured, they’re scorned
They’re such easy prey.

There’s evil, destruction
Slavery and confinement
When will we be free
To escape this harsh climate.

The false prophets that lead
Promote fear and blame
We must vote them out
Or, have more of the same.

Break free of the ties
That bind and oppress
Check your moral compass
Don’t settle for less.
