What does it mean to believe what I believe
When I'm surrounded by a world
That doesn’t like what I'm doing
What does it mean to believe what I believe
If I'm gonna stand by what I say
I believe is true
So many words around
That make the sounds of difference
But words are not enough
When belief calls for commitment

It's a dangerous thing
To live what you believe

What does it mean when I fail to be the man
I try so hard to be
And you see me for what I am
What does it mean when doubt makes me retreat
And I can't find the strength I need
To stand up and beat it
It's not hard to compromise
And take the easy option
But living lies wont satisfy
When truth can't be forgotten

Taking up your cross
Is a dangerous thing
It'll be the end of life as you know it
Leaving everything

What does it mean to believe what I believe
When what I say is not the way
The world would want to see it
