it’s your fate lyrics – detente

(lyrics: crosby; music robinson/hochheiser)

born into a cl*ss structure, rich man or slave at his feet
bystander or maker of crime killing in war or doing time
the elders who possess the power build *rs*nals in defense
you pay the price for their fears, their memories they won’t forget
it’s your fate, you don’t decide
it’s your fate, struggle just to survive
no hope, no hope for you who come from the slums
the verdict in long before your first breath filled your lungs
tomorrow you’ll rise, look around you, wonder why
all you see in decay. fate has not been kind
it’s your fate, you don’t decide
it’s your fate, struggle just to survive
tomorrow you’ll rise, look around you, wonder why
all you see in decay. fate has not been kind
it’s your fate, you don’t decide
it’s your fate, struggle just to survive
it’s your fate, you don’t decide
