Make me dance all day
See me reach out to the light
Know me in a song
Stereotypes fall apart
Releasing our fears
More than blood thru veins
Family tears joys and pains
Connect in one love
Peace, silent words heard
Inside our mind space in time
Whispers unknown ...ssssh
People make money
Money makes people mo' friends
Money goes friends end
Old houses light up
Walls reflecting our history
Murals tell stories
