Cry A Waterfall

I can cry a waterfall.

Hating people because of who they are.

Got a new president now we're talking about building a wall.

Thought we were done with genocide but they're trying to start a war.

Killing innocent people because the race they were born.

Sending us to jail locking us up because of you're bored.

I guess that makes you proud probably brings you joy.

Saying this is the land of the free

but it still feels like living in slavery.

Maybe that's never gonna change.

It's still happening today because you won't give us a chance.

No matter what your gonna make us feel small.

It's a shame that I can cry a waterfall.
