Thunder comes crashing
through my mind
Once again
my rage is thrashing blind

As the noose is tightened
something stuck in my throat
I can hear myself incanting
I can hear the oath

No more backing down
No more running
No more giving ground
No more running

Too many times
Too many places
Too many bigots
and angry faces

We're hiding away
to our own shame
You know the story
It's all the same

Mainstream culture
Mainstream lies
Mainstream husbands
and mainstream wives

I will not change you
or set you free
Just let me pass
and leave me be

I hold no grudges
but I am drawing a line
You can either accept it
or kiss my behind

For blubbering fools
I have no more time
I have roads to walk
I have mountains to climb

So stand aside, brother
Let me walk on
The oath is taken
The deed is done

I will walk on
Not matter but light
I will walk on
With one star in sight

No more backing down
No more running
No more giving ground
No more running
