Find a Way Lyrics

They'll make you think it's the only way
Cause there's always a price to pay
But it's your road and your choice to make
Start new todayAnd I know we'll find a way
I know we'll make a way
I know we'll find a way
Let's start here todayOn November 2nd, election day
I will be thinking that things could change
I voted for the lesser of evil
How many relate?And it didn't scream, didn't move away
Instead of [?] ending the hurt it bring
Someone, 2005 to the 1958
Well, I knowAnd I know we'll find a way
I know we'll make a way
I know we'll find a way
Let's start here todayI wonder how far things could escalate
Before the streets light up in rage
Civility slipping away
What more will it take?'Til it's your cousin that dies of AIDS
'Til your pregnant daughter can't find a place
'Til most of the youth end up locked away
A chance we can't takeI know we'll find a way
I know we'll make a way
I know we'll find a way
Let's start here todayI know we'll find a way
I know we'll make a way
I know we'll find a way
Let's start here today
