You may push me around
But you cannot win
You may throw me down
But I'll rise again
The more you say
The more I defy you
So get out of my face

You cannot stop us
You cannot bring us down
Never give up
We go on and on
You'll never break us
Never bring us down
We are alive!

All my will
All my strength
Rip it out
Start again

The wind blows
I'll lean into the wind
My angle grows
I'll use it to win
The more you say
The more I defy you
So get out of my way

Can you leave it all behind?
Can you leave it all behind?
Cause you can't go back
You can't go back

    General Commenti play on a select volleyball team that wasn't very good at the begining of the season, then we started listening to this song before every tournement and ended up getting 9th out of 50 teams at Nationals. Everyone said we couldn't do it...but the more they talked the harder we played. and i have this song to thank for that

    General CommentThis song is about not taking shit from anyone. The more they try to push you around, the more you are going to want to get back up and push them back harder.

    On a side note, do you think that "Can you leave it all behind?" is a reaction to U2's song "Walk On"?
