Waking Lions

  • Is this better
    Tell me there's a better way
    I'm not afraid
    I'm not gonna hide from the vultures above, serpents below
    They wanna lay me to rest, but I won't go
    Yeah

    Is it better to die than live another day
    I'm not afraid
    I'm not gonna run from the scars and within, burning your skin
    They wanna lay me to rest, but I won't go
    Yeah
    I won't go

    I wanna stand up, a hundred feet tall
    'Cause fear will never lead the way
    I'm ready to run, a hundred miles strong
    I will never be the same

    Waking the lions in me
    I'm waking the lions in me
    Waking the lions in me
    Waking the lions in me

    Burning to ash, I'll die until I rise again
    I'm not afraid
    I'm not gonna stop till I Break down this cage
    Escape from this chase
    You'll never silence my voice
    No, I won't go
    No, I won't go

    I wanna stand up, a hundred feet tall
    'Cause fear will never lead my way
    I'm ready to run, a hundred miles strong
    I will never be the same

    Waking the lions in me
    I'm waking the lions in me
    Waking the lions in me

    Far way too long
    I slept inside the dark
    But now I rise
    It's time to make a move

    Waking the lions in me
    Waking the lions in me
    Waking the lions in me

    I wanna stand up, a hundred feet tall
    'Cause feel we never lead my way
    I'm ready to run, a hundred my strong
    I will never be the same

    I wanna stand up, a hundred feet tall
    'Cause fear will never lead my way
    I'm ready to run, a hundred miles strong
    I will never be the same

    Waking the lions in me
    I'm waking the lions in me
    Waking the lions in me
    Waking the lions in me
    I'm waking the lions in me
    I'm waking the lions in me Writer/s: Leigh Kakaty, Josh Adam Strock, Andrew Colin Fulk
