Do you hear that
shh, listen closely
Do you hear that
shhh, listen closely
Do you hear that sound
the sound of a homeless man begging for beer,
of children crying because mommy and daddy don't wanna hear
what they have say
it's the price you gotta pay
to grow up in a world
where dreams are dead and punches are hurled
where you gotta pay to see the day
when you'll be happy
even if your past was crappy
i'm not trying to be sappy
just supply you with truth
apply your own youth
we can change this place
we just got to pick up the pace
attack it face to face
don't be a disgrace
be an arms race
we are a new generation
doesn't matter if you're white, black, hispanic, or asian
we're in it together, united
let's make the fire burn bright the one that we lighted
because dreams aren't drums
they weren't meant to be beat on
and we're not dumb
we don't have to be treated wrong
it won't take long
if we awaken in song
all of us, no leavin'
if we put up a fight, there's not a thing we won't be achievin'
you just got to believe in
believe in yourself
you don't need wealth
to make an impact
there isn't a thing that you lack
we all just need to interact
now that's a fact
don't let yourself get smacked down
don't slack now
we can change this place
we can change this place
we just got to pick up the pace
attack it face to face
don't be a disgrace
be an arms race
we can change this place
we can change this place
we can change this place
we just got to pick up the pace
attack it face to face
don't be a disgrace
be an arms race
