Where are the heroes
In my time of need?
Is my cry not loud enough
Or have they gone all numb?

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, your violence their silence
Although 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 saviors?
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
Truth is never honest
When you're to blame

Pushing and pulling
Never give in, one day I wish
You'll see you're not so beautiful within

I will overcome, our violence your silence
Although 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, their violence your silence
Although 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
