This song is by 7 Generations and appears on the album To See The End (2008).

He has tried for so long, you can hear it in his faint voice
And the weight of the years has grown with every broken dream
He knows the meanings of the names he has been given
By those who never sleep with empty stomachs or cold feet
But is it so wrong to simply reach for a better life?
Is it so wrong to dream of what one has never had?
His fingers blister and bleed, when he sees them he fights to hold back tears
The word home has lost all meaning because nowhere feels safe
The "land of the free" has given only hunger and toil
And the future that awaits promises only more of the same
But isn't it wrong to beat a human being down so far?
Isn't it wrong to kill the only hope that makes life bearable?
Sitting in the lap of luxury as others languish in abject poverty
The privileged cry thief and criminal
While wringing their bread from the sweat of another's brow and praising every barrier constructed to keep the have-nots starving
But as long as survival is on one side and hunger on the other, every fence, every wall, every border will be torn down. Torn down.
