By Sanjiv Bhatt

I have principle and no power
You have power and no principle

You being you
And I being I

Compromise is out of the question
So let the battle begin…
I have truth and no force
You have force and no truth,

You being you
And I being I

Compromise is out of the question
So let the battle begin…
You may club my skull,

I will fight
You may crush my bones

I will fight
You may bury me alive

I will fight
With truth running through me

I will fight
With every ounce of my strength

I will fight
With my last dying breath.

I will fight…
I will fight till the
Castle that you built with your lies
Comes tumbling down,

Till the devil you worshiped with your lies
Kneels down before my angel of truth.*
