My Legacy

lyrics

What's it like not to own your own life?
Like a kid caught up in genocide.
A child caught up in their parents hate
Not their own destiny but their fathers fate.

Forced through the gate
Onto a road they're driven
Could this life be really worth living?

Confusion
As to who we are
Can only step so far
Can only reach so far

Held captive
By the sin they're in
Not their own doing
But their life's in ruins
So far

But you have you own heart
And the door is ajar
For fate to be changed
Destiny rearranged

Bow to the shackle?
Or fight your battle?

Life won't remain broken
When my heart stays open

Perpetuate the same?
Or perpetuate the change?
In whose name will you play out your life's game?
Your forefathers and you aren't one and the same.

Release your ball and chain
That's been wrapped around your brain.

Don't continue the pain
Don't continue disaster
Look after
That which you're called to master

Astound
Those who kept you down

Wounded in the heart soul body and spirit
Can we hear this
Can you hear this?
