We Can Get There







We Can Get There



Peacefully I lay my head to rest

And hope a new day will take away

The beasts that walk the halls of government


Hopefully I’ll wake one morn to see

A new flag arise and hear the cries

Of people singing songs of victory



Equal rights and equal share

of everything, everywhere

I know, I know, we can get there


Silently I take my babies’ hands

To make them feel safe and keep the faith

What they can do for a better world to come
