Lyrics

I've been searching
Through other people's words
Looking for direction
I've been trying
To get into their worlds
Without satisfaction
So don't go changing
Your troubled mind again
You gotta make decisions
Don't go waiting
On middle ground when
It's not a safe position

Though you've lost all you received
It's not what you got it's what you believe in
Though you've forgot all you need
You've got to stand up
For what you believe in

A lack of something
Is evident again
I feel I must explain
'Cause I feel nothing
But frustration and pain
That I can't contain

Though you've lost all you received
It's not what you got it's what you believe in
Though you've forgot all you need
You've got to stand up
For what you believe in

Don't leave me behind
Out of sight is out of mind
Please don't let me stray
I know I'll be okay

So now I see
I've got to get off of this fence,
My mind's made up now
'Cause I feel free
And my soul can make amends
For all this doubt

Though you've lost all you received
It's not what you got it's what you believe in
Though you've forgot all you need
You've got to stand up
For what you believe in
