I don't know how to get ready to be ready for this this is my only home taken away and taken back to a country I have never known she said, I imagine Mexico as someone would who had never been there because I have never been there my mother and father died a thousand times just to give me a better life they're my inspiration, taught me love this nation now we’re all being criminalized I don't know how to get ready to be ready for this this is my only home taken away and taken back to a country I have never known on this stolen land of immigrants who work hard, pay in full but get no benefits yes on the stolen land of immigrants who work hard pay in full but get no benefits he said, it's hard to focus now when you're a dreamer your life is used as a scape goat, a political punching bag I got to watch my every move got to watch my back I don't know how to get ready to be ready for this this is my only home taken away and taken back to a country I have never known living in between the shadows of two worlds If you took the time to look into my eyes see your reflection in my soul If you took the time to look in to my eyes you might realize we are each others only home music and lyrics by Morley ©Oneism Music/ASCAP

about

This is a late night recording at home, I wrote this in response to #DACA - Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Mr. Trump rescinded this program put in place by President Obama last September. Over 800,000 immigrant youth and their families are being affected.
These are some of their words I wrote after conversations and watching the news.

I don't know how to get ready to be ready for this
this is my only home
taken away and taken back to a country I have never known

she said,
I imagine Mexico as someone would who had never been there
because I have never been there

my mother and father died a thousand times
just to give me a better life
they're my inspiration, taught me love this nation
now we’re all being criminalized

LYRICS:

I don't know how to get ready to be ready for this
this is my only home
taken away and taken back to a country I have never known

on this stolen land of immigrants
who work hard, pay in full but get no benefits
yes on the stolen land of immigrants
who work hard pay in full but get no benefits

he said,
it's hard to focus now when you're a dreamer
your life is used as a scape goat, a political punching bag
I got to watch my every move got to watch my back

I don't know how to get ready to be ready for this
this is my only home
taken away and taken back to a country I have never known

living in between the shadows of two worlds

If you took the time to look into my eyes
see your reflection in my soul
If you took the time to look in to my eyes
you might realize we are each others only home
