Lyrics

Can you help me try to break free of the shame I'm in?
All these people slinging arrows
Throwing stones at me

Stand by my side
Stand by my side, oh no
I cannot hide
Stand by my side, oh no

What did I do to deserve this?
Was I all that bad?
Can you show me human kindness hasn't died for good?

Stand by my side
Stand by my side, oh no
I cannot hide
Stand by my side, oh no
