Since I started being impressed
By the things that move me
All the treasures that I missed
Came back to stand around me

And as I curse the wasted time
I lift my head to say
Thank you God, you gave the strength
That helped me walk away

All the fear and anger
Still stays within my heart
And I can't recall the last time
I imagined they'd depart

But this is what I'm going to do
When they force me to doubt
I'll ask for what I know remains
To help me sing them out

Just sing it

As rays of sun shine through the clouds
And heat the soaking ground
So when we come to sing the shouts
We'll burn the theaters down

Let every disbelieving sneer
That looked me in the back
Turn, come towards us
And feel the first attack
