"There Is No Alternative" as written by Greg Kurstin and Tina Sugandh....
Trapped inside an ugly life
Stuck in my cocoon
Needed some wings to make it right
Had to fly away real soon

Busted out and headed straight
Now I'm loving life
Nothing can get in my way
I'm the prettiest thing in the sky

Break me, break me
You think you can
Take me, take me

You're wrong
Been held down too long
Higher, higher than I'm gone
Cause this is the way I want to live
There is no alternative

All the colors of the world
Painted onto me
Sick of being a black and white girl
Finally I'm free

Busted through the atmosphere
To the clouds I fly
Up on top is where I'll stay
Now I'll do what I like

Break me, break me
You think you can
Take me, take me,

You're wrong
Been held down too long
Higher, higher than I'm gone
Cause this is the way I want to live
There is no alternative
Everybody knows that I can't be told
To be anything but me
Be who I want to be
Change my life so suddenly just like "I'm free"
Now that I know that life is gold
I can always be strong negativity is gone
I was off but now I'm on
Took the right and left behind the wrong
You're wrong
Been held down too long
Higher, higher than I'm gone
Cause this is the way I want to live
There is no alternative

    General Commenti love this song.
    it explains, pretty much, me. =]

    ps. in the second verse, i think it should be:
    All the colors of the world
    ARE painted on to me
    I'M SICK of being a black and white girl
    Now finally I'm free

    then, in the bridge it should be:
    Now that I know that life is cold
    I can always be strong
    NEGATIVITY'S gone
    [then some words i don't know XD]

    * corrections are in caps. =]
