To close the gap

Have you not ears with which to hear the cries of those who wait for you to hear 

Have you not eyes to see their suffering and know they are but people too

Have you not a heart that tells you they are your brothers too 

280,000 Tennesseans have waited til there is no wait 

No human beings life should ever be defined by political convenience 

We call on you simply to listen to us and hear our pleas

We stand in witness to the unnecessary deaths and suffering of so many poor Tennesseans 

We stand in witness to the human tragedy which for so many years has just been part of Tennessee 

And say now is the time to listen 

Now is the time to hear

Now is the time to see

Begin the journey to a better Tennessee 

One which welcomes all Tennesseans. 

Close the gap

Now is the time

Close the gap 

Leave no one behind.
