lyrics

When I wake up too early
The summer sun on my face
I feel the air from the street outside my window
And the birds sing their tune for me

A second cup finally stirs me
Around my moment of zen
I tune in and tune out to hear you screaming
But you don’t answer for the things you said

And I will not run
I’ll pay for the things that I’ve done and not done
When the time comes to choose
And my ego has been bruised, I’ll not lash out
And I will not run

You speak of actions in theory
And practice hate with routine
Say you’re the smartest and brightest but then use words like bigly, and run from truth that’s so plainly seen.

I can’t blame you for being simple
It’s just the hand you were dealt
But the danger lies in spreading those fears
So go and peddle them to someone else

And sing with me

I will not run
I’ll pay for the things that I’ve done and not done
When the time comes to choose
And my ego has been bruised, I’ll not lash out
And I will not run

And I will not run
I’ll pay for the things that I’ve done and not done
When the time comes to choose
And my ego has been bruised, I’ll not lash out
And I will not run

(We will not let you win we will rise.
We won’t be taken in by all your lies)

I will not run
I’ll pay for the things that I’ve done and not done
When the time comes to choose
And my ego has been bruised, I’ll not lash out
And I will not run

(We will not let you win we will rise.
We won’t be taken in by all your lies)
