When facing the broken road
   that endures beyond my sight
I find I can’t summon the strength
   for that first step into the night.

It’s easier for me to set up camp
   in the middle of this broken ground
No step, no strength, just resignation
   to be in the mess in which I’m found

But dissatisfaction kills my soul
   and makes it impossible to stay
Get up…GET UP! There’s someone there
   who needs to hear what you’re to say

Purpose is greater than passion
   it’s fueled by determination and will
The strength to walk isn’t yours
   but when you choose to go, you’re filled

Forgive me, Lord, for resignation
   laziness and hesitation
I will walk and I will go
   and I will help change this nation
