(chorus)
I won`t close my eyes
To the sufferers plight.
In a world full of sadness
I won`t turn off my light.

Our cries for justice are shots in the dark
But our strength`s in our bite
And not in our bark
It`s time to stand
And shout it out loud
And the louder we scream
The sweeter the sound.

(chorus)

I won`t close my eyes
When I know that i`m right
When i`m drowning in tears
I won`t turn off my light.

We`re shown no respect
But that can`t break our pride,
When our backs to the wall
We won`t run and we won`t hide
It`s time to stand, face the oncoming crowd
And the louder we scream
The sweeter the sound.

(chorus)

I wont`t close my eyes
When the future don`t look bright
Though the road seems too long
I won`t turn off my light
In a world full of darkness,
I won`t turn off my light
