There's blood stained streets where I've marched and yelled
Broke through the lines when we felt compelled
Got a whole crowd of people behind me
With their arms linked and they're scared but they're willing

There's something real in that place and time
That wraps itself around your mind
And you forget, you forget, you forget
That changing the world takes time and patience

Oh, I'm growing from it

My friends and I we saw a lot of shit
Didn't process it for years now we're facing it
Took the crazy dreams of my generation
Tried to make em' something real

But in the mystic worlds we built around us
To escape from the violence that surrounds us
We often left the hard work needed
For a vague, conceptual struggle

Oh, I'm growing from it

And these are the days we pay new attention
As we can look at this world with a brand new lens in
Facing the vast complexities
Of this global human fabric

From those like me who took the reigns of change
And forced our way onto center stage
To those friends who took the oath
Against all enemies foreign and domestic

There's something real in this place and time
That wraps itself around your mind
And you can see, you can see, you can see
The imperfections that bind us all together
