[Verse 1]
I see a world running in circles,
They don't know what they're chasing.
They find the pain with the money and fame,
Looking for love in all the wrong places.
I see the look on their face,
I think they're about to cave in.
(I think they're about to cave in)
I can't just stand by and wait
Hoping that somehow they make it out,
So here I go!

[Chorus]
I've got nothing to be ashamed of (I'm not ashamed),
So why should I hide and wait for someone else to say the word?
There is nothing to be afraid of (I'm not afraid),
So I'll spend my life speaking what I know needs to be heard.

[Verse 2]
They hide their pain
And embrace the darkness,
Alone and what they're facing (what they're facing).
If I keep quiet
While I watch them dying
I am no different than the demons
That they're fighting.

[Chorus]
I've got nothing to be ashamed of (I'm not ashamed),
So why should I hide and wait for someone else to say the word?
There is nothing to be afraid of (I'm not afraid),
So I'll spend my life speaking what I know needs to be heard.

[Bridge]
I will illuminate with every word I say,
Until my dying day I will be unashamed.
I am no stranger to the pain of being hated (being hated),
But I just can't bear the weight
Of a life that's wasted. I won't waste it, no!
If I stare right into their eyes
And never say a word,
I gave up on who I'm to be (who I'm to be).
If I don't share this love I've found,
I am the one to blame.
This is not my secret to keep.

[Outro]
(I've got nothing to be ashamed of, hey!)
I've got nothing to be ashamed of (I'm not ashamed),
So why should I hide and wait for someone else to say the word?
There is nothing to be afraid of (I'm not afraid),
So I'll spend my life speaking what I know needs to be heard.
I've got nothing to be ashamed of (I've got nothing to be ashamed),
So why should I hide and wait for someone else to say the word?
Until my dying day, I will be unashamed!
