Because Because

What goods having a song if you don't sing it?
What goods having a bell if you don't ring it?
Because we have been cut with a thousand shears
But society would rather talk about Brittany Spears
Because I have to learn to forgive the teacher who said
          I was nothing and thats all I would ever be
Because I have to believe in God as much as I believe in me
Because as strong as hate and shame are - I know that love is more!
And God loves Mother Theresa just as much as he loves a common whore
And I know that the heart should not be an open sore
Because our "YES"s should be stronger than an ocean of "NO"s
Because the pain you feel in your heart someone else knows
Because there is more to us than just our clothes
Because history should do more than make us cry, it should help us learn
That there is a fire inside us that we must forever let burn
Because there is horror, but there is always hope
And if you don't believe that then maybe you're the dope
And I have learned what Shakespeare always knew
"Above all things, to thine own self be true."
