This is purely lyrical:

Ok, so I woke up today wanting to slit my wrists,
But itís too early to give into the devilís death kiss,
I put my mind on focusing my hazel eyes,
Realising that I should never listen to the Ďprouderí guys,
Whatever I am is what God has planned,
So I smile clutching my bible in my hand,
The knife of truth in my left,
The shield of prayer strapped to my chest,
You see me standing like a soldier,
Look at me now; the truth has made me bolder,
Every second is precious,
Iím going to spread the word by making it infectious,
Iím sick of dilly-dallying around wanting people to like me,
I love God accept me who I am or be prepared to fight me,
I donít mean physically but by the gift of the word,
Be accepted by people who tell the truth but never be deterred,
Just remember that nothing matters on this earth,
Love, God, Live God, trust God this is all your worth,
If ever you feel like youíre different remember that you are,
But thatís a positive thing just play your part,
Keep heart and keep your head facing the clear sky,
When you die youíll remember why.

some very wise words said-- very good attitude. Absolutely nobody can ever be you.
