A World Ahead (Lyrics)

Confined with no space to speak. 
Build up the skin to hide what composes me. 
I see the path but my soles are worn and filled with mud. 

The needle threads. 
An image of beasts marching in heroic certainty. 

I am the tiger. A gem among a world of stone. 
I won’t be mastered by what holds me down. 

My quiet hands shuffling undetected. 
Where is my affirmation to make more out of this. 
To live a life worth while. 

I am the tiger. A gem among a world of stone. 
I won’t be mastered by what holds me down. 

I am the tiger (among a world of stone) 
I am the tiger (among a world of stone) 

My hands pushed under the weight of my mistakes and doubts. 
Dreams and hopes pushed aside. I can’t live a life for someone else. 

I am a gem among a world of stone. 
I am the beast on the tapestry 
I am the courage that the needle sews 
My life comes first. 

Put fear aside. Don’t look back. The relief from pressure set me free. 
Hold my head high. I won’t let this shift sway me. Hold strong. 

I can create the life I underestimated for so long. 
For me to write the lines. I now see the world that lies ahead. 
The world that lies ahead for me. 

I am the gem. I am the tiger. I am the courage. My life comes first. 
I am the gem. I am the tiger. I am the courage. My life comes first.
