It comes as no surprise
when I look around and realize
how far I have to go.
No job in sight, my wallet's getting light
but no knife is sharp enough to cut the fight out of me.

My pride is small enough to swallow,
don't count on this storm to keep me from tomorrow
If there's rain, you know I'll weather it.
If there's flame, I keep it together
and if I have to jump I will not hesitate.

Cause I’m not scared of hitting rock bottom
I’ll just bounce back up straight to the top
and I don’t care how long it takes,
I’ll be walkin’ those lights up on that stage.
Cause my troubles are heavy but they won’t pull me down,
I can swim againist the current I don’t have to drown.
Let’s see how far we can go today,
Let’s see how far we can go today.

Feels like I’m backed into a corner
so I'm leading with my fists
because the only way is forward
and I'll cross the Delaware
soldier beware
you'll need a bigger army if you want to try and drown out my boom.

Never assume there's only one way through
I'll take a hammer to the wall
if I got nothing else to do
and if you have to will you stand your ground with me?

I needed the sand in my eye,
the grit in my teeth
I needed my life on the line.
And I’ll paint maps with my blood,
I only learned how to swim in the flood.
I’ll build bridges with my scars.
