Good Riddance — Understood lyrics

Have we really lost our way
I heard the people talking but I can't believe
The things they say
Seems like a million days
Since we chose a new direction
Tried to find the strength to change
Do you remember when 500 stood as one
And reached for the sky
Our pride was understood
Friendship & brother (sister) hood
Gave us the courage to try
Sometimes it's such a lonely road
Despair is everywhere
So much anger to unload
But I'll fight with every breath
In my heart I still believe
We can make a difference somehow
