The sound of a trash truck
in the pre-dawn

Pain inside my body
but my mind at peace

No one can hurt me now
You may hurt my body

but you won’t destroy my soul

I will stand tall
thought you may thrust me forever
up against a wall

I will look you in the eye
I will not succumb to your threats
I will not barter my soul

I will not take any obscene bets
I will not gamble my integrity away
I will not tell any lies

just to make you satisfied
just to make you proud
just to grant you power

The power I possess
comes from deep inside
