05. Fighting To Survive

by Building 429


Crying on the inside and it cuts me deep
ĎCause I know youíre gonna smile when I fall
I canít help but feel the fear when Iím standing here
ĎCause I know youíre gonna laugh if I have to crawl

Can you see the desperation? But you donít know my situation

ĎCause I, Iím fighting to survive
Canít you see it in my eyes?
Please donít push me anymore
But I, Iím still fighting to believe
That there is hope for me
Somewhere beneath the very least of these

And I canít help but feel ashamed when I know the truth
That there was more than I surmised inside your heart
I want to make it go away but you bear the proof
My words burnt through your skin and left you scarred

I didnít see the desperation; somehow I didnít see your situation

Because Iíve been fighting to survive
I didnít see it in your eyes
But I wonít hurt you anymore
And I, Iím fighting to believe
That there is hope for me
Somewhere beneath the least of these

written by Jason Roy

Behind the Song:
"The power of words is this songís focus. Weíve all been paralyzed by words spoken to us at some point in our lives. Maybe it was our parents, our friends, a co-worker or spouse. Suddenly we feel like the whole world is watching, waiting for us to mess up again. Then one day we realize that we have become the aggressors with words that cut the heart of someone who deserved some grace and forgiveness. In those moments we have the choice to continue this cycle or to stop it dead in its tracks. Thatís the day we realize all of us are scared of falling short, and weíre all just fighting to survive." - Jason Roy (Building 429)
