    Look out 'cause here I come
    And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
    I'm not scared to be seen
    I make no apologies, this is me

    Another round of bullets hits my skin
    Well, fire away 'cause today, I won't let the shame sink in
    We are bursting through the barricades
    And reaching for the sun (we are warriors)
    Yeah, that's what we've become

    She needs more emotion. This is an anthem for those who never felt like they’ve fit in ANYWHERE. She has a great voice, but once you see the original and know the caliber of emotion it was meant to be sung with this sounds a little mundane.
