lyrics

I am not afraid
I am not ashamed
I am now the one,
who controls this rage.
Breaking through the night,
distinguishing this fright, I…

I am not ashamed,
I am not afraid.
I will remain proud of
all that I have made. My
instincts are divine,
because they are mine.
Every twitch and tick is
an unconscious sign, I…

I am not afraid,
to do this to you.
I am not ashamed,
you’ve done this to me.
I am not afraid,
to do this to you,
for you tried to extinguish me.

I am not afraid,
I am not ashamed.
I’m in ignorance of
judgments being made. I
Open up my eyes,
drop my disguise,
with every mistake I become
much more wise so
I do not deceive,
I do not believe.
For that world of indecision
I don’t grieve. I
stare into the sun,
promise not to run,
face the light of night and
try and have have some fun!

I am not afraid,
to do this to you.
I am not ashamed,
you’ve done this to me.
I am not afraid,
to do this to you,
for you tried to extinguish me.

I am not the one,
to deny my strength.
I am not the one,
to claim innocence.
I will not pretend,
I’m incompetent.

For you tried to extinguish me.
Expel and erase all of me.
Extract and negate all I see.
Hide me and silence my dreams…

Break the mold,
Escape the hold!
Of a life of sadness
begging for your soul-don’t

Fight the trend,
do not bend!
Weakness works with madness,
tempting me to end you!

I am not afraid,
I am not ashamed.
I will stand up to
obstructions in my way.
