Building 429 – Rise lyrics

What's a boy supposed to see
When he's staring in the mirror at 13
Where's the man that he wants to be
He must be hiding behind the lies that he's too weak

I was there when they pushed you down
Wiped the blood from your knees when you got up off the ground

No one ever knew you the way I did
They never saw the man you'd be
When they laughed at the awkward kid
No on else believed that you could fly
They couldn't see the man you'd be
But it's wonderful to watch you rise
What could make a child a man (help him understand)
When he's looking at the scars that mar his gentle hands
Where's the mercy that he needs
It must be hiding behind the pain that they can't speak
(It must be hiding behind the cut that makes them bleed)

I was there when they pushed you down
Wiped the blood from your knees when you got up off the ground

I was there when they crowned you king
Wiped the blood from your feet when you hung from the tree

No one ever knew you the way I did
They never saw you in the child
As they laughed at his awkwardness
No one else believed that you could fly
They couldn't see the man you'd be
But it's wonderful to watch you rise
