Sir, excuse my rudeness
But I believe that I know
Something that you don't
Because you are talking down to me
Like you think I know nothing
And I won't allow it
This promise prowess
Though I respect you
Even through the prejudice
Your blind leading blind's not hard to see, yeah

You gotta believe
Oh, yeah
Don't fear
Don't break it
You gotta be free
I hope your blinded eyes will see

You can ask me anything
I may not know the answers to everything
No, I won't
But all I can do
Is speak from the heart
A vapid sentiment
And I won't be clever
With your endeavor
All trying to prove me wrong
I will remember
Your blind leading blind's not hard to see, yeah

You gotta believe
Oh, yeah
Don't fear
Don't break it
You gotta be free
I hope your blinded eyes will see
You gotta believe
Don't fear
Don't break it
You gotta be free
I hope your blinded eyes will see, yeah

Whatever the cost
Whatever I lost
Whatever I gained
Whatever I fought
I knew I was tested
And I am the furthest
From what you think it is worth it

You gotta believe, oh
Don't fear
Don't break it
You gotta be free
I hope your blinded eyes will see
You gotta believe, yeah
Don't fear
Don't break
You gotta be free
You gotta believe
Don't, don't let them hold you down
Come, come on, sing it
Oh, I hope my eyes can see
You gotta believe

    General Commenti think this song is about believing in yourself.
    regardless of how other people view you or the world, you have to trust your judgement and yourself, that you don't let other people define who you are. and that no matter how hard it is to not let the tides of the world take you, it is always worth it in the end, to know that you are who you want to be, and not what other people have wanted to make you.

    General CommentPerson above me hit the meaning right on the head. There isnt much depth in this song but it is such a live and happy song. That is why i love bryces music he can have a deep, meaningful song and then just a song that makes you want to get up and dance.

    Lyric CorrectionI think its "Despite this prowess", instead of "This promise prowess."
