All through history changes were made
caring people stood up to aide
They followed the bloody trail
to defend the weak and the frail
Slavery was ended at last
a hideous crime from our past
But what if everyone looked away
and left change for another day?
Back when women had no rights
all the court battles and gender fights
But what if everyone lost their will
where would our ideals be still?
Children working til almost dead
exhausted, used and underfed
What if we all closed our eyes
what happens when no one tries?
Animals suffer and die at our will
how much more blood will we spill?
It's time for the battle to be won
history says that it can be done
