Who were you that said I only sing the saddest things you know, well I'm not waving any banners I do not signal to give up hope, I sing those saddest things to frogs outside and let those stories echo out over the water there's a spark that's glowing out there and this is how it grows.

And who were you that said you bet you know just all about me and I'm one of those ungrateful kids who don't appreciate his family, well I bet you don't know half the things that you would bet on, I have nothing but love for everyone in my whole family, cuz my history is everything that taught me who to be, so when I sing into that shadow I am not doing it mournfully, cuz the hardest things to talk about can't haunt you if you're brave, and all the scariest remembrances cannot undo the progress made, so into that darkness sing all the darkest things that you can see, cuz learning not to be afraid is the hardest part of learning to be free

And who were you that was just screaming at me with hot vitriol, and that dusk lit parking lot, outside the VFW hall, well I'm not moving to Venezuela, I don't even speak that language and this is not a confrontation this is me and you and everything because this is Georgia and this is where I come from, these are the hills of dirt and clay that I have sprung from, and I'm not intimidated by the secrets that we try to hide, all the treasures I've had plundered for me through slavery and genocide, so let me die here in this land I love if I cannot give it all back to everyone, and I will do what I can to do what I believe is right, no matter what already has been done
