I’ll never forget
the way you spoke to me
condescending asshole
you never broke me
I’ve gone a long way
and you’re still sitting there
I dealt with anger
when you did not even care

I don’t plan to sit back and wonder
what it would be like if you’d pushed me under
and now those days are long past
and I’ve moved on and grown
but not into the mold you made
and not into the life that you’ve known

those days are getting darker
those times are long ago
those nights, consumed with anger
I had time to let them go
in hindsight things are clearer
when the details fade from view
my goals are drawing nearer
now I know I’ll never be like you

I had beliefs
like you could understand
we can’t all think like you, no
we can’t all hold your dirty hand
you chose to live your life alone
and reap the benefits
by now you know that money’s cold
your security’s not worth shit

and so I sat there
like time and time before
punished for my freedom
and for my dreams of more
I could miss my doorway
you were sure to let me know
but I am not your whore
so fuck you and your fucking window
of opportunity
it’s not opportune for me
and I don’t have the answers
but you don’t have the means to set me free
when freedom’s what we want
but free is what you’re not
some things can’t be bought with cash
especially when cash is all you’ve got

in hindsight things are clearer
when the details fade from view
my goals are drawing nearer
now I know I’ll never be like you
I know I’ll never be like you
I know I’ll never be like you
I’ll never be like you

as you knew well
I’ve been through hell
so live your life
don’t live mine
don’t live mine
don’t live... mine
