I'm an outkast
But don't count me out
Underground dwellaz, roaming beneath the cellars
Failed us with this system, ain't living how they tell us
Hideaway place, it's safe, they raise a nation of hate, erase a man for his faith
They feed us lies, dress up my King in false disguise
Behind those eyes, soul of a savior I recognize
No compromise, while the whole world becomes corrupt
Tonight we break the surface for lives, we coming up

Brother take my hand
Let's separate ourselves
Leave behind this place
Don't ever look back

Disgraced man, survivors of the wasteland, looking for a home of his own
No place to run, no place to hide
It's time for you to stand on your own
Militia, coalition, not of this world
Resistance, we the alliance
We freedom fighters, its honor we defend
We follow truth and never your trends

Brother take my hand
Let's separate ourselves
Leave behind this place
Don't ever look back

I'm an outkast
But don't count me out

Brace yourself like a man

    General CommentMy favorite. True practicing Christians are outkasts in every way on earth, to the world, to many church members, to many family members...

    Somehow, this song impresses upon me that the Christian life, with its rewards, peace, security, love, fellowship, relationship with a loving God, victory, and even hardships is worth being shuned by the people around us. It is the most exciting life imaginable. Adventure and challenges. Battles and victories (more than a few defeats too in my case). It is great.
