“If you were a boy you could study law.”

If you looked upon me and you saw

The soul of a man’s

My hardworking hands

So I walked to Hell to open the door

To an endless battle in the one-sided war

And the army behind wants even more

Heaven will award me for my valor

But I did it for me.

If you look upon me and you see

My broken heart and my fear depart

In the war you’d fight

For the inequality blight

For the people–the men’s’ sight.
