And I fought for it all,
And I thought that I'd never fall, but I was wrong.
The word said, the people fled,
Who would've guessed that this was the end?

I'm falling solo,
And I want to know
Why does God plaster me?
Why does God plaster me in this broken frame?

And it never changes.
I'll say this a thousand times,
With broken wings
And shattered dreams.
I'm worth more than this!

This is what you expected.
By the count of all the blood and tears,
You wouldn't care to know.
Well, this is what you expected.
When you pull the trigger, cross the line,
Now watch as I fall through the sky.

Open your eyes,
Get off the ground.
Who you are
Is who you'll be!

How can you say that you never saw desire in my eyes?
How can you say that you never knew that my dream was to fly?

Well I watch this as it all went through,
But I don't feel a thing.
Will it ever see the sky again?
Will it ever recover?
You better watch what you say,
'Cause God might not forgive you for this awful sin.
And I know who I am, and I know what I've been through.

This is what you expected.
By the count of all the blood and tears,
You wouldn't care to know.
Well, this is what you expected.
When you pull the trigger, cross the line,
Now watch as I fall through the sky.

I am,
(Am I just a fallen judge?)
I am so far away,
I am so far away.
(Am I just a fallen judge?)

This is what you expected.
By the count of all the blood and tears,
You wouldn't care to know.
Well, this is what you expected (expected).
When you pull the trigger, cross the line,
Now watch as I fall through the sky.

(By the count of all the blood and tears,
You wouldn't care to know.
Well, this is what you expected.
When you pull the trigger, cross the line,
Now watch as I fall through the sky)
OH!

RISE AGAIN!
RISE AGAIN!
AND TAKE IT TO THE SKY!
