Name: 

I hear the words you say to me
I see the way you look at me
I know what’s on your mind
So stand up, get up, back up now
Just stay away
I know the fear you hold inside
I know what’s weighing on your mind
There’s nothing you can do
So stand up, get up, back up
You’re reaching out just to be like Me
But you’ve fallen short, sill you’re following Me
You had the chance to bring me down
But there’s nothing left, so just stay away from Me
You can’t stand to see My face
To know you’ll never take My place
There’s nothing you can do but
Stand up, get up, back up now
Just stay away
I feel the hate you push on Me
I see the things that you can’t see
I know what’s on your mind
So stand up, get up, back up
It’s not the things you say to Me
It’s not the things that I believe
You try to bring me down
So stand up, get up, back up now
Just stay away
