The Hearts Are Tested

In this place
The hearts are being tested
Hearts made of stone sink and drown
The rest live forever
Learn to float
Son
The test of a strong man
Is a man who can still care
After being treated unfair
God is loving
Giving the careless an excuse
But don't you
Die young too
Live on through
Be yourself
Don't fight your life
It's given to you to learn
Experience and feel
It's a test
Everything before you
Is a lesson for you
A test of you
Pay attention
Take care
And do well
