Just because i can't change everything,
doesn't mean i can't change anything.
Dance on the ashes of what was and fall head first in what could be.
Beyond the barricade...is there a world you long to see?
To envision a world without chains but recognize that we,
as individuals, can only chip away at the links.
One at a time, day by day.
To have the ability to wage quiet wars in our everyday lives,
and recognize the subtle victories when they happen....
An opinion changed by something you said.
A lifestyle adjusted by what you suggested.
A brighter path taken with directions you gave.
A world revealed by what you did.
One brick today is one less for tomorrow.

    General CommentWord, this song kicks.

    Evidentally about how one person can make a difference, no matter how little or much they can do, they can still change things.

    That line is amaaaazing. Her voice seems so strained, yet so amazingly controlled that it blows me away.
