I'd been brought up
early in the mornin'
when daddy came to say goodbye
while mom was on the corner
waitin' for the social yes
man all the kids seem fine
loneliness inside

i don't believe it
i don't believe it
we're almost here

i don't believe it
i don't believe it
we're almost here

walk past school
we meet up at the docks
I need a ways to eat tonight
we'll cover up the bruises
brothers what the hardest
men began to shout and fight
I'm stayin' inside

we don't believe it
we don't believe
we're almost here

we don't believe
we're almost here

but my father tells me
don't cry
cause sometimes the
dark horse dies

you can learn without the system
go 'head
even the dark horse wins

you can learn without the system
don't cry
cause even the dark horse dies

you can learn without the system

mama put some water
in the milk for us to drink
so that we won't notice
my brother came home
with some food
he'd stolen from the man

but said that he'd
worked all day
my father said that
we don't steal
and he pulled him
from his chair
and he gave it back

we all went to bed
without a sound
without a sound
without a sound

don't cry
cause sometimes the dark horse dies

you can learn without the system
go 'head
even the dark horse wins

you can learn without the system

I am just a man now
with my family
I don't need your help no more

you don't need to bother
with me
I have all I need
I have it all
