lyrics

I was ten years old when you first came into view.
Watched you arrive from hell like the devil was chasing you.
No money, no possessions, just the will to survive
You came the world over and forever enriched our lives

Immigrants, citizens, the undocumented, one and the same
God-given humanity trumps everything, no matter the tribe you claim
We built these artificial borders, drew the lines, and built these walls
Embrace difference, reject hatred, let every self-imposed barrier fall

With sweaty brow, sun-worn skin, and calloused hands,
Day after day, you pushed the shovel into fertile lands.
Toiled in factories and sweatshops lined row by row,
So your kids wouldn’t go to school hungry in their donated clothes

Diaspora-United as one
Refugees-United as one
Undocumented-United as one

proud of it. The songs on "The Walls they build.... The Walls We Break," concern issues like the stress and anxiety that come from fearing deportation, the contributions made by immigrant communities, youth crime, and police harassment and brutality.
