I am still a man though I come from another land
When you look into my eyes, you won’t see me compromise
Do you understand that I mean only to survive?

Here not so easily, I long for my family
I hope they are all right; I think of them day and night
I am not a rambling man; my crop won’t grow in sand

America, where’s the innovation I hear of?
I am aware of why you’re scared, because I am, as well.

My craft is my life raft; that I have work is all I ask
Let me provide my wife (she bears my unborn child)
With integrity; you’d do the same as me.

America how I wish I were within your law
My soul is bare, but I don’t care - I will not withdraw

In a perfect world
I would live beside the lake that I was born by
My grandmother would hold my child while I held the hand of my wife
As our neighbors pass by

It’s not a perfect world, but I won’t let myself be deterred
I’m strong and I’m smart and I have a pure heart

All alone, far from my home, but I won’t compromise
