To this world I am unimportant Just because I have nothing to give. So you call this your free country Tell me why it costs so much to live Tell me why.
This world can turn me down But I won't turn away, oh no I won't turn around.
All my work and endless measures Never seen to get me very far Walk a mile just to move an inch now Even though I'm trying so damn hard I'm trying so hard
[Chorus] This world can turn me down But I won't turn away And I won't duck and run Cause I'm not built that way. When everything is gone There is nothing left to fear. The world cannot bring me down No cause I am already here, oh no!
I am already here, Down on my knees I am already here Oh, no, I am already here. I must have told you a thousand times I am not running away.
I won't duck and run I won't duck and run I won't duck and run No I pass away.
