I hear her screams that echo from her heart.
What I'd do to silence them and show her understanding.
I feel her pain that tears her apart.
What I'd do just to give her solace that she has been quietly demanding.
I feel the tears that fall from her eyes.
What I'd do just to give her sight towards a future that is promising.
Can you see that as you suffer, so do I?
Can you hear the screams that I cry?
Can you hear me asking God why?
Why must we suffer and endure so much pain?
Why has the sun hidden just to give us more rain?
Why have our minds driven us so insane?
Rain you will not drown us in the flood.
We won't be cast aside, we will be alive!
The disturbing places we once occupied will be left behind.
I've been wanting to show you that through the lies we can find truth.
I've been wanting to show you that through the pain we've gained nothing but strength.
Open your weary eyes to a future that burns bright.
Take my hand as we persevere and push forward.
Opportunities lost just lead to another open door.
Rid yourself of the veil that once masked your identity.
Believe in yourself and don't listen to a single word of negativity.
Nothing can hold you down with me by your side.
I won't let you slip, I won't let you fall.
This light, your eyes, nothing can swallow you alive.
You won't drown!
You will breathe!
I've heard your screams.
Now follow this road I've paved to lead you towards your dreams.
