Lyrics

They Can't Move Me


They keep me in this place out of pure and simple fear
They're scared of what I'll do if I get out of here
I'll forgive them for their sins of ignorance and pride
They don't know what to do with all the guilt they feel inside

They can cover up the truth and put me in this hole
But, there's nothing they can do to my mind and soul
They can keep me locked up here, but I won't play the part
Of the slave they see in me, they can't possess my heart

I'm like a mountain, they can't move me
I'm like a rock resting in the sea
Violent waves crashing all around me, they can't move me
Oh, they can't move me

One day I'll be free, I'm sure that that's my fate
What they want will never be, 'cause I refuse to hate
I'll rise above them all, the power of love will be my fuel
I will not shrink, won't let myself be cruel

I'm like a mountain, they can't move me
I'm like a rock resting in the sea
Violent waves crashing all around me, they can't move me
Oh, they can't move me

And I know what's right, and I'm willing to die for what I believe
Oh, the truth is a powerful weapon, I've got no tricks up my sleeve

I'm like a mountain, they can't move me
I'm like a rock resting in the sea
Violent waves crashing all around me, they can't move me
They can't move me

I'm like a mountain, they can't move me
I'm like a rock resting in the sea
Violent waves crashing all around me, they can't move me
They can't move me

No, they can't move me
No, they can't move me
No, they can't move me
Oh, they can't move me
They can't move me
