Don't disturb the beast
The tempermental goat
The snail while he's feeding on the Rose
Stay frozen, compromising
What I will, I am

Bend around the wind
Silently thrown about
Again I'm treading so
Soft and lightly
Compromising my will
I am

I am
I will
So no longer will I
Lay down
Play dead
Play your doe in the headlights
Locked down and terrified
Your deer in the headlights
Shot down and horrified when
Push comes to pull comes to shove
Comes to step around this self-destructing
That never would've ended
Til' I Rose,
I roared aloud here
I will
I am.

I am
I will
So no longer will I
Lay down
Lay dead
Play this
Kneel down
Gun-shy Martyr
I rose, I roared
I will
I am
