Here lies the old myth,
breaking the mold with,
truth to take away the trickery.
Twenty centuries of progress,
suffer slowly as we regress,
losing headway to ourselves.

Behold the covers, the sisters, the mothers,
the daughters, and spouses, on the magazines.
Truth has been abused.
How could she fill those shoes?
Propaganda meant to fuel their schemes.

She is strong but never silent,
sure of where her truth/strength comes from,
one day, one girl army will overcome.

Treading the current, issues at hand,
Shifting, we sway, from justice and then back again.
What we once broke, He has made right,
lifting her up, giving birth to Jesus Christ.

    General CommentYes, you do, shattered dream, but be careful. I know that goes against the songs message, but even you will have a time for silence.

    General Commentthis song is about the virgin mary who gave birth to Jesus. it uses it as a metaphor when it talks about one girl army.

    General CommentI don't believe it's about Mary... more, it uses her to support the general message of the worth and important of women in God's plans.

    General CommentYep, lessismore it talks how Mary fought her way in a world of Men, and gave birth to Jesus, that was not Joseph's son either

    General CommentI see it comparing today things like what we would feel in Mary's shoes... wondering how it would all work out. and i also think of the 1 girl in the band when i hear this song! It's an awesome song! I love it and our last mission trip we played this countless amount of times and filled it in with 8 girl army (that's how many of us were on the trip, and all girls...) to be strong when faced with unexpected situations!! FIF rocks!
