lyrics

Blood shed in a war,
Truth right at the door.
No allies anymore,
It’s only me I'm fighting for.
It’s a big picture to You,
Just admiring the view.
But I’m still here
With a million questions in my head.

Crowd surf across the ocean
To calm my fears of going under
Out of focus tryna find my way

Crowd surf across the ocean
To calm my fears of going under
Out of focus tryna find my way

Can you handle the truth?
Do you know what’s good for you?
I’ve gotta find out, before my time is out.
Don’t let the world burden you.

Can you handle the truth?
Life’s not always as pretty as it looks.
Don’t let your guard down.
Keep your fight alive.
Run your race till you make it to the finish line.

Open eyes can see wrong.
They choose not to respond
Wonder why things always stay the same
Walking around like you've made a change
Don’t judge a book till you pick it up and read about the problem
And decide if you’re gonna do something to fix it.
We all complain but we’ve gotta stand up and make a change.

I’ve been under the fear is gone.
Eyes are focused now I’m moving on.

I’ve been under the fear is gone.
Eyes are focused now I’m moving on.

Can you handle the truth?
Do you know what’s good for you?
I’ve gotta find out, before my time is out.
Don’t let the world burden you.

Can you handle the truth?
Life’s not always as pretty as it looks.
Don’t let your guard down.
Keep your fight alive.
Run your race till you make it to the finish line.
