Lead on!

What are our civil rights?
Can they be won without a fight?
The world is trying but people are dying.
Children are crying and the whole world is lying
in the bed of all that is bad.

It has been achieved in the past,
but only for those who did more than ask.
They won their own liberties
without the use of frivolities.
Honor and desire and courage proved to be victorious.

It can still be done!
The timeless war can still be won!
Stand up for your rights,
never give up the fight,
and the rest is certain to come.
