We the lost. We
The scared. We
The perpetually confused.

We the broken. We
The scarred. We
The battered and the bruised.

We the proud. We
The fighters. We
The believers in the just.

We the similar. We
The different. We
The ones built out of dust.

We the rusted. We
The aged. We
Ones time has forgotten.

We the evil. We
The vengeful. We
The angry and the rotten.

We the good. We
The forgiven. We
The open and the pure.

We the troubled. We
The anxious. We
The stubbornly insecure.

We the aliens. We
The outcasts. We
The ones out of place.

We the strange. We
The flawed. We
The human race.
