The higher you build your barrier, the taller I'll become.
The further you take my rights away, the faster I will run.
You can deny me, you can decide
to turn your face away, no matter 'cause...
There's something inside so strong,
I know that I can make it,
though you're doing me wrong, so wrong.
Oh you thought that my pride was gone,
there's something inside so strong,
oh there's something inside so strong.
The more you refuse to hear my voice, the louder I will sing.
You hide behind walls of Jericho and your lies will come tumbling.
Deny my place in time, you swander wealth that's mine,
but my light will shine so brightly, it will shine over you.
Brothers and sisters,
when they insist we're just not good enough (not good enough, ooh),
but we know better (yes, we know better).
Just look 'em in the eyes and say
we're gonna do it anyway, we're gonna do it anyway,
(do it anyway).
