Why do you still stand when something goes wrong?

I still stand no matter how many arrows are left in my back
I still stand because I understand they will soon be removed
I still stand because my wounds will heal themselves.

I stand tall in this mirage of lies
I stand tall for those with muffled cries
I stand tall for all the innocents who've died

I stand for the hope of a better world
I stand for the fear of the unspoken words
I stand for those who can't stand for themselves
I stand for those who won't stand for themselves

I stand for the words of truth to hit the civilized air
I will not stand for the lies, the lies i cannot bear
