_survivors_

Don't you know
for a moment know
you think the world owes you
it don't owe you a thing

there's a man doing time
keeping a rosebush alive
He was wrongly accused
40 years and still survived

Don't you know
for a moment know
you think the world owes you
it don't owe you a thing

When it's given all it can
the best you must invent
when it's given all it can
the best you must go get

There's a rosebush inside
keeping a man alive
and we all need hope
like want the sunshine

You think the world owes you
You got to want the sunshine
It don't owe you a thing
You got to want the sunshine

-Sean Hayes "Rosebush Inside (Morees Bickham)
