You must make that choice -
You're not putting up with it anymore;
Get back on your feet,
And fight harder than before.
You've been hit many times...
Knocked down, but not knocked out;
Fighting until your last breath
Is what winning's all about.
How long will you let life hurt you?
Be brave, and stand your ground;
Aren't you tired of getting punched in the face
Every time you turn around?
How many hits will you take
Before enough is enough?
Life will kill you if you don't fight back.
To live, you've got to be tough.
Who's the giant in your corner?
The one who scares you with his size?
Clinch your fists. Don't look down,
But stare straight in his eyes.
Don't be afraid of your giant.
He may look big, but he's not;
Be strong, and take him down.
Go and give him your best shot.
Sometimes, you have to get so angry
Because of the situation you're in;
Sometimes, you have to get so tired
Of life beating you again and again.
Your giant is really your teacher.
He tests to see if you'll quit;
He'll give you problems to solve...
Never give up when you're hit.
