lyrics

I've been working all my life
Just to prove to everyone
I'm worthy of the finer things
And strong enough to take their stings.
It's taken me some years to learn

I am my own worst enemy.
Just when I think I'm doin' right,
I'm caught up in another fight.

Take me off your pedestal.
I'm far from perfect.
Don't you know?
I can't keep up with your expectations;
And I don't want your medication.
I'm gonna do this on my own.
No new friends.
I can stand alone.

I may never know
What they think of me.
They will never say
What they really mean
So I can't really care
What they think of me.
It'll never really matter anyway.

You push me till I think I'll break.
Not sure how much more I can take.
Until you spouted lies and hate,
I was sure it was you who held my fate.
Now the curtain's pushed aside.
Now I see where I once was blind.
My sword, my shield, my staff, my rod
I don't need you, just me and God.

I'm cuttin' all the puppet strings.
Finally gonna sing what I wanna sing.
Say what I wanna say.
Wear what I wanna wear.
Don't give a damn if you like my hair now.
It's time for me to be my own boss,
Fight my own wars,
Carry my own cross.

I may never know...

I've been workin' so hard
To prove myself to you.
Now I know
I can do this on my own.

I may never know...
