Go ahead and speak up and speak out
But only speak the words I tell you to take.
Go ahead and be yourself
But within the confines of who the people allow you to be.
Be the voice for the weak!
But make sure your words match the public outcry.
Because everyone who cares has a map.
And it only maps their way!
Go ahead and be you,
because that is what we are told to do.
