Back in the 1980s. Took the heart and home of faith what we call a better future and a better place. I don't think we really achieved that now did we? So why don't you tell me...* inaudible*

I will be. They took us from our homes. In the heavenlies. To a better life. Not just a land. Or so they said. Of opportunity. I will be. are we the bastard? The bastard sons? In the heavenlies. Forgotten by our ones. Not just a land. They call us back home now. Are we the bastard sons? Stripped of all our pride. betrayed by our laws. Segregated in our own lives. So would you look in my eyes? I see no dignity in this. To find a light to follow. Why would you hurt me. Into my mother's eyes i'll stare inside. If i yell we're the same? I didn't even know you. We seem to have lost all our pride. Even though you had known me. And i heard your voice for the first time that day. Can't you see it in our eyes? I didn't even realize. How much you have loved me. You were just waiting for me to choose life.

    General CommentI got these lyrics off of a really old blog, except for the first part that I translated myself. They might not be correct. Anyone who knows the true corrections please do so and I'll update it. Also if anyone knows where I can get more songs from My Name is Nobody, I would love to hear about it.
