A million hollow faces each one down and out
I’d be right there with ‘em oh without a doubt
I was taught to tell my story like a child spells their name
And there’s a lot of freedom in talkin’ about the pain

I know that I ain’t perfect I’ll probably never be
But I’m stronger every mornin’ and that’s enough for me
Raisin’ up my voice to share the freedom that I found
You don’t need to like it but you can’t stop me now

No I won’t fear the past or all those ugly lies you told
It’s more than worth the price if it saves a single soul
So throw the stones you wanna’ throw and twist my words around
The angels took my pride away and the devil burned it down

I know that I ain’t perfect I’ll probably never be
But I’m stronger every mornin’ and that’s enough for me
Raisin’ up my voice to share the freedom that I found
You don’t need to like it but you can’t stop me now

You tried to hide my eyes behind a veil of guilt and shame
To drag me through the mud and to put me in my place
But I’m glad for what I’ve gone through even my darkest days
Taught me like a sunrise how to hit my knees and pray
