I made a
Mistress of
The open road
Because at home
I had this
Dainty little thing
Always fussing
Always screaming
How she was
Just too much
Woman for me
Now I am
Neither man
Nor beast
I have no soul
To be leased
Onto whatever
Master you call
Your own
All I am is
The wind that
Blows from the
Far corners East
As an agent
Of the Unknown

So I don't know
Whether I'm just
Too young to
Know better than
To not grow up
And live out
My days as
Just another
Dead letter
Or whether I'm
Just too much
Of a man
To refuse
To do all
I can
To break
My chain
And become
My own lessor
But what I
Do know
Is that I
Have my needs
And I need
To be free
I need to
Be free

They call me
The fighter
The writer
Of my own fate
The bastard who
Leaves nothing
But blood
Scorched earth
Broken bones
And shattered hearts
In his wake

I don't know
Whether I'm just
Too young to
Know better than
To not grow up
And live out
My days as
Just another
Dead letter
Or whether I'm
Just too much
Of a man
To refuse
To do all
I can
To break
My chain
And become
My own lessor
But what I
Do know
Is that I
Have my needs
And I need
To be free
I need to
Be free

They call me
The fighter
The writer
Of my own fate
The bastard who
Leaves nothing
But blood
Scorched earth
Broken bones
And shattered hearts
In his wake

I've only got
Listlessness and
Leather on
My body
And a damn
Good time
On my mind

I scream
Fight me
Fight me
Because I am a
Goddamn animal
And these claws
Will show you
Exactly what
That means

You scream
Free me
Free me
Because I am your
Goddamn savior
And these hands
Will give you
A reason
To breathe

So let me
Let you know
You want it
Let me hear
You scream
[Fight me
Free me] x 2

[Solo]

[Who am I
What am I] x 2

I am the fighter
I am the writer
Of my own fate
The bastard who
Leaves nothing
But blood
Scorched earth
Broken bones
And shattered hearts
In his wake
Never forget that
