How does it feel to be erased?
How does it feel to be replaced?
Consumed by your inborn hate
You've made your grave in a lonesome fate
How does it feel to feel nothing at all?
How does it feel to stumble and crawl?
Not such a nice feeling now, is it?
Others may deem you as quite pathetic
I don't need your filth, your shame, your lies
And I found in time I did survive
I'm stronger now because I don't allow
People to walk over or break me down somehow
I don't need your trust, your eyes, your games
And in the end it was really such a shame
But I refuse to relate to the same mistakes
I don't allow myself to ache or break
I feel stronger than a wild, untamed beast
That I recently hunted and made into a feast
I'm dancing over clouds that are trying to bring rain
I can be above them because I am free from all pain
And I look back to those nights where I cried in a sweat
Wondering if I'd be all right or stuck forever in debt
Hindsight is perfect; this saying is true
You'll realize things later you never thought you knew
But it's so hard to hold on when you're fixed in a place
Where everyday in the mirror you see the same face
But ambition is free; enthusiasm costs
Not a penny more than what you already lost
And this stronger state; hope it lasts for awhile
My lips they did hurt from a lackluster smile
I have a handle on things; I know who I love
And what's important to me; bestowed from above
I am content at the moment; I'm proud to be me
Even if others may not fully agree.
