To this world I am unimportant
Just because I have nothing to give.
So you call this your free country
Tell me why it costs so much to live
Tell me why.

This world can turn me down
But I won't turn away, oh no
I won't turn around.

All my work and endless measures
Never seen to get me very far
Walk a mile just to move an inch now
Even though I'm trying so damn hard
I'm trying so hard

This world can turn me down
But I won't turn away
And I won't duck and run
Cause I'm not built that way.
When everything is gone there is nothing left to fear.
The world cannot bring me down
No cause I am already here, oh no!

I am already here,
Down on my knees
I am already here
Oh, no, I am already here.
I must have told you a thousand times I am not running away.

I won't duck and run
I won't duck and run
I won't duck and run
No I pass away.

This world can turn me down
But I won't turn away
And I won't duck and run,
Cause I'm not built that way
When everything it gone
There is nothing left to fear
This world cannot bring me down
No cause I am already here.

This world can turn me down
But I won't turn away.
And I won't duck and run
Cause I'm not built that way.
When everything is gone
There is nothing left to fear
This world cannot bring me down
No cause I am already here.
