As I Rise – If I Die, Hang Me High lyrics

With the rope around my neck
I’ll stand alone with my pride
Where are you now?
Where are those noble hearts?
Your voice
Ripples through my spine
My heart keeps your secrets
I hope yours keep mine

It has been sung so many times
"We only know what we've been told"
And still we follow blinded
Guided by lies
Because mediocrity
Is so comforting
Why did you put
That wild heart to sleep?

What have you become?
A weak passerby to everyone
Loyal to the hand that strangles you
What have you become?

My knee will only touch the ground for the bond of love
Not for fear or surrender like yours
Not for fear or surrender like yours

What have you become?
Yearning for a life
You are too idle to create
Loyal to the mouth that bites you
What have you become?
