lyrics

The oppressors call her a killjoy
They try to make her believe all is well
But she sees through the veil that they've woven
With eyes that they'll never see through
In search of truth

There goes my heroine, opening minds everyday
Though she goes against the grain, she is here to lead the way
She's my heroine, she is swimming upstream
Fights for the vision that she sees, 'til it's no longer a dream

She's not here for your comfort
She's been silent for far too long
They might try to cut her down, 'cause they know she's a beacon of hope
And while they try they'll prove themselves wrong
Prove she's what we've needed all along

They need a heroine, opening minds everyday
Though she goes against the grain, she is here to lead the way
She's my heroine, she is swimming upstream
Fights for the vision that she sees, 'til it's no longer a dream

She is their worst nightmare, fresh out of my dreams
She fights their reactions with reason and compassion
I will stand by

Heroine, opening minds everyday
Though she goes against the grain, she is here to lead the way
She's my heroine, she is swimming upstream
Fights for the vision that she sees, 'til it's no longer a dream
'Til it's no longer a dream
