One day

Their hopes

Their dreams



That’s why Rosa Parks sat on the bus

That’s why we walk through the streets

With our hands up to the sky


They tell us to stand down

But instead,

We all stand up

As we put our fist to the sky

Shots fly toward us

This is why we fight 

For freedom


The war was never over

We will fight to the end

It takes old people’s wisdom

Young people’s passion

That will flow through us

Till the end


One day when the war is done

One day when the war is won

One day we will be one country

One united nation


One day.
