Let’s talk about fear
And the toll that it takes on us every day
And pain, grief and doubt
And the way that it pulls us inside out
If you believe nothing’s gonna change
Just leaves you prisoner to the pain
 
But what makes the abused refuse to back down?
What makes the broken stand their ground?
What makes the heart start to believe?
What is the gift that faith receives?
What is the soul of the mystery?
What breaks the hold of brutality?
 
Hope with its eyes wide open
Hope with its will unbroken
Hope
 
And let’s talk about what has become
Of the trust that we gave and the things we have done
And faith in something bigger than us
More true than people who vie for our trust
Trust is used, truth is betrayed
How’s anything gonna change?
 
But what makes the abused refuse to back down?
What makes the broken stand their ground?
What makes the heart start to believe?
What is the gift that faith receives?
What is the soul of the mystery?
What breaks the hold of brutality?
 
Hope with its eyes wide open
Hope with its will unbroken
Hope
