Racing to get back home, pull back the reins, break the bit,
Turn this course I've known
Lost upon a windy sea, a tiny rudder holds the key
This caravel is headed straight to
Help me to break these words I can't take back
I can't stay quiet

I still stumble and fall. even if I'm forced to crawl

Why should I apologize
For holding onto what I know is true

Water, it covers me, it salts the earth, it dries the sea
Keep me under fire
Can a tree change it's leaves, opposites from the same stream
I think we all know it's impossible
We praise and curse, but which one is worse
I can't stay quiet

Why should I apologize
For holding onto what I know is true

Consider this, that a forest so great
Can be lost, can be set ablaze
Just one spark can seal it's fate
Conceal the sky in a charcoal haze
Only rain can douse the blaze
Cleanse the earth from the mess we've made
Soothe the wounds from a sharpened blade
From the words we wished we'd saved

Why should I apologize
For holding onto what I know is true

Only rain can douse the blaze
Cleanse the earth from the mess we've made
Soothe the wounds from a sharpened blade
From the words we wished we'd saved

    Many people persecute us-christians ... Saying that we are at fault... We dont have to apologize when we are fighting for the truth that god is our creator .. And the only god
