I want to take my life today
I don't belong here anyway
My God, if You can hear me now
See if Your hand can reach this far

You stopped playing father
as soon as mom conceived
The only time we touched
was just before I screamed
The gift that keeps on giving
Your father gives to me
History repeats itself
Now history meets me

So what if I'm retarded
Mentally delayed
I'm sorry for annoying you
But I was born this way
You speak so much better
Got an aerodynamic face
Mega-babes and tons of friends
So why show so much hate?

Vultures are circling again
My open wounds are food for them
Oh God, if You will reach Your hand,
You can deliver me from man

You hurt me…you walked on me.
You walked on me!
And I wasn’t hurtin’ anybody…was I?
You only hurt me ‘cause he hurt you.
You hurt me!
I was already down…and you kicked me!
Then you left me!

But I'll get up!
I'll get up!
I'll get up!
Watch me get up!
Men fail me, but the Son of God saves

When I'm face down
and I'm scared and lonely,
You are by my side
I'm talkin' face on the ground
My back is painted with footprints
You're the only one that hears me cry
I seek I find just one name
by which a man can be saved
And He comes before my tears can dry
Now I'm not alone
No, I'm not alone
And I'm free now 'cause I've got no pain to pass on
