Who I Am - Lyrics

I was born in a world of great divide
We all live together, but we're not all on the same side
When I was a child, I didn't see all the lines
But that was until reality opened up my eyes
I saw people that look like me
Pray for equality
While others believe in supremacy,
I saw my people in chains mentally
And others I saw walking free

Every child needs to know who they're born to be
Am I born for greatness?
Am I born to be free?
And every day when I wake up
I hear bondage coming for me
Lies of society
Tear me down and take away my liberties
But what can I say? We've been this way for centuries

So I guess this is who I am, it's where I came from
These are my people, this is our struggle
I guess this is who I am, it's where I came from
These are my people, this is our struggle
It's who I am

There are times when I wish I could run away
But I can't run or hide from my reality
I'm grown and I don't own a thing, not a dime to my name
Or anything to leave for my kids to claim

It's a shame
'Cause I wonder if they'll live better lives than me
Or will they grow up listening to society?

Someday my life will come to an end
I don't know how and I don't know when
But one thing I do know is that I'm
tired of waiting for a change to come
and I still got enough life in me to march toward freedom
I still got enough fight in me to fight for our children
Lift your head, child, there's no need to hide
We're gonna overcome with dignity and pride

Because this is who we are, it's where you came from
These are your people, this is our struggle
I'm telling you this is who you are, child, it's where you came from
These are your people, this is our struggle

it's who we are, it's where you came from
These are your people, this is our struggle
I'm telling you this is who you are, child, it's where you came from
These are your people, this is our struggle
It's who we are
It's who we are

C'mon, everybody, we're on our way to victory
We're gonna march toward our destiny until we live in liberty
We'll rise above poverty and change the whole society
We're gonna get up in the morning and make our dreams reality
