To the small and vulnerable
And those who feel small
Take a step back in time
Search the face staring down at you
In the center of the world, it seems
Crowds waiting, watching
No mercy
Hear the noise
Hear it fade, blur
Until there's only one
Until you stand in front of the pain
And release the lions
Release your lions' roar
Hear it drown out the crowd
Hear yourself
Strong
Roar, weak one, as none have ever roared before
Roar, strong one, as the champions roar
Roar, victim, for you are a victim no more
Roar, lion
And release.

Unfortunatly, i dont think this is about me.

but release those lions! break those chains! go for it! Roar!

FYI this takes place in ancient rome, like in a gladiator arena thing.

I love that repetition. It sounds just like a hungry lion.
