"WE CAN'T RECANT"

Chorus
We can’t recant,
There’s no turning back [yeah]!
We can’t recant,
And that is a fact. [Ya’all!]
We’ll stand for the truth,
We know it’s the way.
We can’t recant,
No matter what they say.
Verse 1
Why do the nations stone us in the name of God?
They feel so justified, as they condemn our love.
'Cause our life goes against their self-proclaimed code,
A form of religion that limits their vision.
Repeat Chorus
Chant
You know that we’re saying that we won’t recant,
We’re standin’ on our faith and we won’t recant.
[Repeat 3 times]
Repeat Chorus
Verse 2
We’ll do no thinning of the truth for this Godless world,
Just let them stare, 'cause we don’t really care.
We’re going forward, marching toward ... that day,
We’ll stand firm, & let our spirits burn.
Break: -
Spoken
We can’t recant the truth, not the truth.
No way we’re gonna recant the truth. [Repeat 3x]
Lead Break: --- Repeat
