They're crowded into the smallest spaces 
While outside all of nature cries 
It's known to be cruel and unfair 
But there is no place to hide 

[Chorus]
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never 
Really want to share 
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never 
Knew was there 
Shelter  give them shelter from the coming storm 
Shelter  give them shelter from the coming storm 

I can't sleep I'm haunted by their faces 
The sadness in their eyes 
It hurts so much to see them helpless 
It makes me want to cry 
But still there is so much left unanswered 
For so many innocent lives 
The close the doors and are letting nobody in 
And only the strong will survive

[Chorus]

I've seen the anger and I've seen all the dreams 
And I've watched an existence torn apart at the seams 
And though I may seem helpless 
I will do all that I can do 
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never really 
Want to share 
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never knew 
Was there

[Chorus]
