Same Cry

This song is by Jin and appears on the album The Rest Is History (2004).

We may look different, but we see the same sky
We may see different, but we cry the same cry

To wake up daily, and sleep better nights
That's what we all wish for to seek a better life, right?
It's unfortunate, when tragedy strike,
But the truth is, reality bites
June 4th, '89, a day residents feard
Now known as The Massacre at Tiananmen Square
The day I turned seven, they were mourning and grieving
Thousands of innocents died for what they believed in
Armed with nothing but heart and a point to prove
Stood in front of tanks and refused to move
What would you do, run or stand still?
Whens the life's on the line to test the mans will
Seeking change and they found it, but in death
Strangers, yet they were my blood and flesh
This happened in China, but you ain't gotta be Asian
To relate to the struggle, pain and hard aches, so

You'll never know, you'll never get it
There is no choice, we can't forget it
When we look up, we see the same sky
When we look up ,we cry the very same cry

See, I'm a grown man
It hurts when I turn on the news
And see what's going on in my homeland
The SARS epidemic, could've been lies
Could've stand for "Should Asians Really Survive"
They'll try anything to break your family apart
Politics will break down the manliest heart
Can the child within my heart rise above?
If there's a billion of us, I shouldn't have to look for love
Overpopulation, but damn, just to meet the needs
It's illegal to have more than one seed
How can you dictate birth, regardless to women
And the parents, they make the hardest decisions
Sons keep their family names, so that's not an option
Imagine being forced to put your daughter for adoption
And even though, it's beyond your control
Keep your head up, here's a song for your soul

You'll never know, you'll never get it
There is no choice, we can't forget it
When we look up, we see the same sky
When we look up ,we cry the very same cry

If you don't know where you came from
You can't get the way your tryin' to go
Ain't no denying so, it's true, I got some big shoes to fill
But If I don't lead the movement, then who will?
Stuck between a rock and a hard place
Thinking about the refugees that went to see God's face
Sixteen thousand miles across the ocean tides
Some died, some got lucky and survived
I wouldn't call it luck, they reached their destination
Modern-day slavery without the plantation
Them sneakers on your feet cost a hundred a pop
My people's making fifteen cents a day in sweatshops
To make them kicks, so you can look good
Think we open restaurants 'cause we cook good?
Hell no, we ain't got no choice
I gotta speak up, without me my people have no voice

You'll never know, you'll never get it
There is no choice, we can't forget it
When we look up, we see the same sky
When we look up ,we cry the very same cry

You'll never know, you'll never get it
There is no choice, we can't forget it
When we look up, we see the same sky
When we look up ,we cry the very same cry
