Look at the front page; turn on the TV
They fire another round at you and me
Their guns are loaded; they're takin' aim
Nobody told them we're not all the same
No paranoia; nobody could
Just write it off as being Hollywood
The innuendo between the lines
Leaves no confusion 'bout what's on their minds (whoaa)

I won't go underground
I won't turn and flee
I won't bow the knee
I won't go underground
I won't run and hide
From the rising tide
I won't go underground
I won't compromise
What the world denies
I won't go underground
And I'm not ashamed
Of the cross I've claimed (Noooo)

Listen: They've taken notes on what we say
You know they'd like to lock us all away
Can't stop the movement; can't make it slow
Persecution always makes us grow
They've got my number; it's no surprise
I'm here and wearing no disguise
Bring out the lions and heat up the fire
It's not enough to stop this man's desire (Noooo)

I won't go underground
I won't turn and flee
I won't bow the knee
I won't go underground
I'll keep holding fast
To the very last
I won't go underground
I will turn my cheek
I will boldly speak
I won't go underground
I am not ashamed of the cross I've claimed

I know the Spirit behind this force
It's not surprising if you know the Source
I'll pray for freedom for helpless ones
And I'll keep standing till the new day dawns (whoaaa)

I won't go underground
I won't turn and flee
I won't bow the knee
I won't go underground
I won't run and hide
From the rising tide
I won't go underground
I won't compromise
What the world denies
I won't go underground
I am not ashamed
Of the cross I've claimed
I won't go underground
And I won't lay low
As the hatreds grow
I won't go underground
(whoaaa)
I won't go underground
(I won't, I won't)
I won't go underground
