YOU
YOU

Tell me how has it taken so long for me to open up my eyes?

How has it taken so long for me to finally realize?

And when they all turn against you, you better be prepared to fight.

They say I'm a sinner, but nobody knows.
You only do what you're told, you better hope that you're right.
They say I'm a sinner. I'm not the only one.
You want to point your finger, you better make a choice tonight.
'Cause I'll stand up for what is right.

How has such a bitter person become a man I am?

Tell me how, how am I to change when I'm still trying to figure out how to be saved?

And when they all turn against you, try not to look the other way

They say I'm a sinner, but nobody knows.
You only do what you're told, you better hope that you're right.
They say I'm a sinner. I'm not the only one.
You want to point your finger, you better make a choice tonight.
'Cause I'll stand up for what is right.

You, you better choose your side, make a choice tonight.

They say I'm a sinner, but nobody knows.
You only do what you're told, you better hope that you're right.
They say I'm a sinner. I'm not the only one.
You want to point your finger, you better make a choice tonight.
'Cause I'll stand up for what is right.

    My InterpretationTell me how has it taken so long for me to open up my eyes?
    (How has it taken so long for me to see the reality)
    How has it taken so long for me to finally realize?
    (How did I not realize the truth?)
    And when they all turn against you, you better be prepared to fight.
    (When everyone is fighting you you need to be ready to fight for your self)
    They say I'm a sinner, but nobody knows.
    (People say I've done many things wrong but nobody knows the truth)
    You only do what you're told, you better hope that you're right.
    (You only do what people tell you to, not knowing if it's right)
    They say I'm a sinner. I'm not the only one.
    (People say I've done many things wrong but I'm not the only one)
    You want to point your finger, you better make a choice tonight.
    (You want to blame somebody else, but time is running out for you to decide)
    'Cause I'll stand up for what is right.
    ('Cause I'll stand up for what is right)
    How has such a bitter person become a man I am?
    (How did I become a man by being so bad and mean)

    Tell me how, how am I to change when I'm still trying to figure out how to be saved?
    (How am I supposed to change who I am if I'm still trying to save myself)

    And when they all turn against you, try not to look the other way
    (When noone is on your side, don't back down)
    They say I'm a sinner, but nobody knows.
    (They say I'm a bad person, but nobody knows the truth)
    You only do what you're told, you better hope that you're right.
    (You only do what people tell you to, not knowing if it is right.)
    They say I'm a sinner. I'm not the only one.
    (They say I'm a bad person but I'm not the only one doing bad things)
    You want to point your finger, you better make a choice tonight.
    (You want to blame somebody else, but you have to decide what's right)
    'Cause I'll stand up for what is right.
    ('Cause I'll stand up for what is right)
    You, you better choose your side, make a choice tonight.
    (You need to decide who's side your on and make your decision before time is gone)
    They say I'm a sinner, but nobody knows.
    (They say I'm bad but they don't know the truth)
    You only do what you're told, you better hope that you're right.
    (You only do what people tell you to, without knowing if it's right)
    They say I'm a sinner. I'm not the only one.
    (They say I'm bad. But I'm not the only bad person in the world)
    You want to point your finger, you better make a choice tonight.
    (You want to blame somebody, but you have to make a choice)
    'Cause I'll stand up for what is right.
    ('Cause I'll stand up for what is right)
