Liner Notes: 

This song is deeply personal to me for many reasons and is written for all of the children and families who are victims of immigration policies and uncertainties that are terrorizing and traumatizing innocent children and families who have lived in the United States for many years by threatening or carrying out effort to detain and deport members of families for a variety of what I think are unjust reasons based on various interpretations of various laws.

Lyrics: 

V1
a little baby boy
taken far from home
with the only family
he has ever known

now he's a young man
left feeling all alone
in a country that
keeps throwing stones

PC
some say he doesn't belong
but they are so...so ...wrong....
and he will stay strong

C
innocent boy
forgotten in an
unjust political world

innocent boy
heartbroken with an
identity unfurled

innocent boy
living in a toxic world

V2
a bright teenager
full of dreams and hope
working hard in school
now on a slippery slope

balancing life and work
walking a tightrope
his heart full of love
as he tries to cope

PC
some say he doesn't belong
but they are so...so....wrong....
and he will stay strong

C
innocent boy
forgotten in an
unjust political world

innocent boy
heartbroken with an
identity unfurled

innocent boy
living in a toxic world

B
he is a dreamer
who is kindhearted
not a criminal

he is a believer
who is a self-starter
not illegal

he is an optimist
who is compassionate
not a danger

he is an idealist
who is considerate
not full of anger

he has been
a proud brown
American.....

PC
they say he doesn't belong
but they are so...so....wrong....
and he will stay strong

C
innocent boy
forgotten in an
unjust political world

innocent boy
heartbroken with an
identity unfurled

innocent boy
living in a toxic world

This is so heartbreaking. I cannot imagine what you and so many are going through, but I know it is so very wrong. Much love to you and your loved ones!

Reading these lyrics made me cry. I am so angry and frustrated and pissed off at the hate, intolerance, injustice and violence that has poisoned American ideals.
