1998 - 2010

Crossin borders like refugees

Escapin the new reelected king

A mix of anger and fear

And I'm still sittin here

Just as scared

Wishing for better days

And real hope for me

But I wanna run

With the refugees

And search for possibilities

I pray to leave this red state

And hope that my fate will change

Escape the play where I was born

Cause here is where I refuse to die

Yet I feel like they're leaving me behind

Can they not see my arms open wide

I call out to the refugees

Who fear just like me

But I'll have to wait

For possibilities

And better days
