It's coming

The dream is coming
coming to a television, computer and face near you
you keep ignoring the issue that immigration reform won't pass this year
year that has been filled with ups and downs
downs that seem to get deeper and deeper every time you fall
fall, spring, summer or winter we will not stop working to pass the dream act now
now that I have your attention, please direct it to the upper right hand corner of the room
room full of hopes and dreams
dreams that need to be realized before they fade away
away into the distance of the wind
wind that changes the path of destiny for those caught in it
it was soo long ago when we were brought into this country
country that has become our adoptive home
home is where the heart is here in L.A.
L.A. is where you learn to live and die
die before you see your full potential be fully utilized
utilized by a world that leeches off those who don't know better
better to live on your feet than die on your knees
knees that begin to buckle as the wight of the world starts to become too much
much adu about nothing because time is passing us by
by the way can you please sign this petition and make this call to help the cause
cause I said so mutha fucker
fucker that would rather see his brothers and sisters continue to suffer than admitting that they're wrong
wrong about trying to pass immigration reform and not the dream act
act that we will have to continue on with because we can't be ourselves all the time
time stands still when you are waiting for your dream to come true
true that we are only getting older and the youth that helped start the movement are turning into adults
adults that think they know what's best for the movement but they're just trying to get paid
paid to continue on with the cause because we all have kids and families to support
support from everyone is what's needed to make this happen
happen today and not tomorrow because they're might not be a better tomorrow
tomorrow is another day passed by that can't be taken back anymore
anymore longer and we are all going to be 30 year old dream act students still fighting for the cause
cause life isn't easy
