Standing here

You're standing strong,
with your guns all drawn
Well, guess what? I'm bulletproof.
You can fight the war,
and drop your bombs
But fire doesn't hurt enough to move.
Even if the ground shakes hard enough to break mountains,
Even if the sky rains hard enough to raise oceans,
I'm not moving, I'm not shaking,
I'm standing right over here.
You can push and shove,
try to throw me down
Even if you can, I'll get back up.
Impale and twist,
try to hold me down
But steel never does give up.
Even if the earth moves along the other way,
Even if my feet are killing me,
I'm not moving, I'm not shaking,
I'm standing right over here.
