Words of the righteous
We will not bend
The odds keep stacking up against
Strengthen our self endurance
Break down the cycle
Of errors past
We have to face up to the truth
Relinquish every grudge or bruise

Every ounce of strength grasps
One solid dream
Violent soul
Will be whole

We have to face up to it
For every second we're alive
Let our light shine

To our grave, we must pave
A path for us to rise from
Power surge, kills the urge
Life and death collide

Smash all the boundaries
That hold us down
Hold on to everything that loves
Let go of anything that starves
People with envy will hold us down
Freedom is just a cut away
Nothing can pass our life away

Every ounce of strength grasps
One solid dream
Violent soul
Will be whole

We have to face up to it
For every second we're alive
Let our light shine bright

To our grave, we must pave
A path for us to rise from
Power surge, kills the urge
Life and death collide

We take life's ebb and flow
Testament to the things we know
With the fight, we must roll
Strength will follow
Tooth and nail for the ground that we hold
Failures from the start but we still grow
Heads held high, rally for throne
Holding our own
Not just words we'll show you so

[Solo: Demmel, Flynn]

I can't remember
These doubts I must dismember
And trust in whole

Follow your own lightness
Follow your sound
Believe in me
'Cause I believe in you
