The lives we lead are full of strife
Day in day out, we all cry out
Inside we struggle, inside we scream
And ne'er our battle is e'er seen
Throughout our lives we fight and fight
And to the best of our might.

We see our fate in deep despair
No ounce of light in the air
Though our lives are full of lies
To others, to ourselves, to us.
We fight and fight with all our might
So that in the end we may just
Overcome the night.

First our night we must surpass
And then the light, it must come fast
For the day will come when judgement calls
And to the ground our heart falls

Oh! The humanity!
Oh! The day!
When our hate falls away
And brings love to rings.

To this day I have yet to see
The love of man fail to bring
My heart to sing.

This is why we must overcome
Our hate and judgement.
This is why the day must come
When our whole world
Is brought to coexist.
