Everything we fight for seems to get shot down
No one seems to notice; it's like we ain't around
They tear us into pieces and throw us here and there
No one knows how much we care
So much pain
So many tears
So much hurt
When we gonna learn? Oh
We got to give our best
And push until we break on through

We're shooting straight for the top
Our engine never will stop
This is our destiny
Nothing's too good to be
We know the score
We're gonna break down the door
You wish you were at lunch
This time we got a hunch
We're the underdogs

The people that we trusted really let us down
Everybody wants to fly and never touch the ground
They treat us like we're pieces in a parlor game
Leaving us to take the blame
We don't care
We don't mind
We won't come
When they call, oh
We're takin' what they give
Cuz we can rise above it all

Feeling the pain
Hearing the names
We struggle till we are broken
For all this hurt, we thank you
