Overcome

Where are the heroes
in my time of need
Is my crying abandoned?
Or have they gone, oh no.

They just tend to stand
out of the rain.
Thinking but not acting,
that they're not to blame.

Falling and crawling
A fight to stand up
Memory still haunts me
in the dead of night.

Over and over
I felt so small
But one day I'll be stronger
and you better watch out.

I will overcome,
in violence there's silence, oh no,
it can't be undone.
I will overcome,
knowing that I'm not the only one.
I will overcome
it's the only way to carry on.

Where are the saviours?
Afraid of the toll.
Sorry, do my nine inch nails
slash your soul?

Such heroes,
throwing stones
straight at the one,
who is standing alone?

Twisting and turning,
it's always the same,
the truth is never honest,
when you're to blame.

Pushing and pulling,
never give in,
one day I wish,
you see you're not so beautiful within.

I will overcome,
in violence there's silence, oh no,
it can't be undone.
I will overcome,
knowing that I'm not the only one.
I will overcome
it's the only way to carry on.

Run and run.
Run and run.

I will overcome,
in violence there's silence, oh no,
it can't be undone.
I will overcome,
knowing that I'm not the only one.
I will overcome
it's the only way to carry on.

I will overcome.
