Battle line

right on the battle line waging war
What are we fighting for?
One in the same, wanting the same thing
Been praying for rain
So we won't complain that it's starting to pour
Saved all our rage for facing the storm
This is the fight we've been waiting for

Rise from the shadows we've been hiding in
If there's strength in numbers then give me your hand
We've been on the line a thousand times before
Primed and ready for war
This is the fight we've been waiting for

Broken and bent from the places we've been but
We are not slaves to the mistakes that we've made
Scars don't define who we are
Hearts are forged, remade and reborn
We mend; get up again and again

I am no stranger to time
The lines on my face say
I've been waiting for mine
Patiently pacing, tested and tried
Began as a lamb
But I'll go out a lion
