i will not be broken lyrics – anasarca

[based on “i will not be broken” by robert atworth]

daggers of fear
brandish my skin
i believe i’m innocent
of this sin
the accusation
of being a coward
bounces off
my rubber mask
just a word
they try to get me
to fall apart
try to get into my heart.

they circle around me chanting
wild phrases
they mix me up inside
vast mazes
but i am not broken.
words are useless now to me
action are decisions lost at sea.

i fight with the power to heal wounds
i fight with the hope it will be over soon.
i fight with the will that unbroken win.
i fight with the dagger sticking my skin.

but i will not be broken.

now they try to take my pride
but all my tears have chosen to hide.

i cannot weep,
i cannot lose hope,
i must fight.
i must fight through the day
i must fight into the faded night.

daggers of fear
brandish my skin
i believe i’m innocent
of this sin
the accusation
of being a coward
bounces off
my rubber mask
just a word
they try to get me
to fall apart
try to get into my heart.
