“Deep inside my mind”
(29 of october 2011)


Looking back through the centuries
looking back through those times
looking back through our histories
looking back at those crimes
I see how we fought
I see how we resisted
I see how we survived
I see how we persisted
and how we arrived
at this place in time
at this point in the race
deep inside my mind
this could be the end of me
this could be my demise
but it’ll just be my beginning
for my spirit will rise
this could be my downfall
this could be my end
but I’ll go down swinging
because there just no quitting
deep inside my mind.

Looking around at society
looking around at these times
looking around at our poverty
looking around at those crimes
I see how we were led astray
I see how we were betrayed
I see how we were broken down
just how we were taught to be afraid
deep inside my mind.

This could be the end of me
this could be my demise
but it’ll just be my beginning
for my spirit will rise
this could be my ruin
this could be my end
but I’ll go down fighting
because there just no quitting
deep inside my mind
It’s my time
it’s my power that’s growing
and there's no fear
it’s my will that’s showing
that won’t slow the pace
for it’s a race that needs running
deep inside my mind.

It’s time to take a stand
it’s a time to be man
it’s a time to take back
all the freedoms removed
it’s a time do or a time to die
it’s a time to wake up
it’s a time to arise
it’s a time to look around
it’s a time to see the truth
it’s a time to fight for our future
it’s a time to protect our youth
it’s a time to see just who the enemy really is.

This could be the end of me
this could be my demise
but it’ll just be my beginning
for my spirit will rise
this could be my ruin
this could be my end
but I’ll go down fighting
because there just no quitting
deep inside my mind.
