"Willing to Fight" as written by and Ani Difranco....
The windows of my soul
Are made of one way glass
Don't bother looking into my eyes
If there's something you want to know,

Just ask
I got a dead bolt stroll
Where I'm going is clear
I won't wait for you to wonder
I'll just tell you why I'm here

'Cause I know the biggest crime
Is just to throw up your hands
Say
This has nothing to do with me

I just want to live as comfortably as I can
You got to look outside your eyes
You got to think outside your brain
You got to walk outside you life
To where the neighborhood changes

Tell me who is your boogieman
That's who I will be
You don't have to like me for who I am
But we'll see what you're made of

By what you make of me
I think that it's absurd
That you think I
Am the derelict daughter

I fight fire with words
Words are hotter than flames
Words are wetter than water

I got friends all over this country
I got friends in other countries too
I got friends I haven't met yet
I got friends I never knew

I got lovers whose eyes
I've only seen at a glance
I got strangers for great grandchildren
I got strangers for ancestors

I was a long time coming
I'll be a long time gone
You've got your whole life to do something
And that's not very long

So why don't you give me a call
When you're willing to fight
For what you think is real
For what you think is right

    General Commentthis is the best line ---- "you don't have to like me for who i am
    but we'll see what you're made of
    by what you make of me"
