You know, one of the biggest problems with people is that they enjoy labeling others. Terms like "ugly", "uncool", etc. are used to label people, people who didn't do anything! People make unfair judgments of people before they even get to know them. Even in Biblical times, people preferred to surround themselves with the, so called, "cool people" and all of those not labeled that are left to dry. When Jesus saw this at a feast, he told the man who'd invited him and said "'When you give a dinner or banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just'" [Luke 14: 12-14 (ESV)]
The saddest thing I witness is when Christians, particularly youth, form their little pods and put up their walls, blocking out all those who they don't associate with. That is so hypocritical and wrong! If we're meant to follow Jesus' example, isn't that a direct violation of that?! Think about it!

So I have three messages through this song:
1) If you notice someone being labeled wrongly, stand up for them.
2) Bring down your walls, open your eyes, and look for those in need of a friend.
3) Share this song with those who are being wrongly labeled as an encouragement

Lyrics:
Do you live, do you think like they told you? / Around your neck, can you breathe when they hold you? / You're doing what they say, a puppet on their string / If you do just what they want they'll promise you about anything // Can you believe, do you dream you could be free? / Take your hands off your eyes so that you see / You're more than just a face, you're more than just a name / You're more than labels that the hypocrites around you gave // To all the outlaws, all the outcasts / You wanna breathe? / Come on and fly with me / To all the locked-down, all the burned-out / You wanna be free? / Come on and fly with me // Do you burn, do you bleed when they touch you? / Do you scream in your sleep while they cut you? / More than just pretty scars is what they want to leave / Sit in their tattoo chair they'll leave the markings of a beast // Do you believe, do you dream you could be free? / Take your hands off your eyes so that you see / You're meant to rise above, yeah you were made to fly / You were made to sing and dance where angels never die // Say so long to whatever you once were / Say so long to everything that you once knew / We're more than faces, we're more than just names / We're more than labels the hypocrites gave / We're the affection of the Unseen / We are te sons and daughters of a King // Are you ready to fly?
