I COULD HAVE BEEN YOU

Take, take a look at the sky
Sometimes your heaven seems to far away
Take, take a look under here
Where deprivation turns into decay
I've stood under this rain, felt it seep into my brain
I've shut my eyes and crawled around this mud
I'm scared of growin' old, I shiver when I'm cold
Don't you think I bleed the same blood?

I, I could've been you, you could've been me
One small change that shapes your destiny
If you want the proof, cut me and you'll see
I could've been you, you could've been me

Wait, wait before you turn off
Maybe there's a chance we can relate
Wait, everybody turns on
Why deny a fact that's so innate?
It's not so easy anymore, the way you used to keep score
Not so black and white, the color of your sin
Take a walk inside my shoes, a path I didn't choose
Spend the night inside of my skin

I, I could've been you, you could've been me
One small change that shapes your destiny
If you want the proof, cut me and you'll see
I could've been you, you could've been me

Change is turning into fear, fear is melting into hate
With hate you justify your crime, a crime compassion can erase
Erase
Erase

Touch, touch what I feel
And know I believe everything I say
So go, go if you must
Remember one thing as you walk away:

I, I could've been you, you could've been me
One small change that shapes your destiny
If you want the proof, cut me and you'll see
I could've been you, you could've been me
