I heard a woman say "Shame can't survive being spoken"
And I wonder if that's true
I wonder about the courage it takes to speak the truth
When the truth isn't what most people want to hear
Its what they fear
And quick fixes and bandages are all well and good
And needed too
But do they make for lasting healing
Because that is what I want
An end to the wound
The wound that is in the soul of humanity

Cause I have seen a place
A place called freedom
