I know little Billy from the small time town 
Ma and Pa meant well but they just weren't around 
But he would learn what little they had taught 
They told him, Heaven is hard but hell is not 
He remembers Papa's words before he died 
He said, word hard son, you must change the tide 
Before our people have liberation, you can never rest 
On your shoulders, lies our future boy, so do your best 
Do more than your best 
Never forgot the burden of his father's words 
He lost his own life and lived the world's 
No one told Billy there's some things one man just can't do 
Takes time to forgive and equality to take more before it's through 
Just takes time 
But still Billy went down to the big time town 
Hoping to find some justice there, 
But God how it all seems cynical through the eyes of despair 
He no longer saw in color, he only saw black and white 
There were never people behind these faces 
Until he realized one man can't win 
Can't win this fight 
So Billy went back to small time town 
got a life and he settled down 
He teaches children who never really thought 
He told them, Heaven is hard and Hell is 
Heaven is hard and hell is 
Hell is not worth fighting for.
