"The Tank Man"
The students stood at Tiananmen Square
That’s where they went to fight for public gain
The government said they must get out of there
The people stood their ground and so were slain
In utter shock the public stood defeated
They were in disbelief of what occurred
They thought the stand would have to be retreated
The protest of the mass would go unheard
But one man stood alone and he said No.
And blocked the tanks; observers thought he’d die
They tried to pass, he’d still not let them go
For all those silenced voices he would cry
Because of him they did not go in vain
Around the world, one man had made a change
