lyrics

You hurl your words from moving cars,
coward that you are
In your voice I still hear the malice that I know could bring my end
So I hide behind a pair of jeans and a bold-faced lie
that I am not the woman I have been my whole life

You have won today
You often do
You take so many forms in every city I go to

So I cower behind my car door, and I hold my knife so tight
It leaves a mark in my palm until you leave my sight

You have won today
you always do
tonight's another form that I will burn into
My mind with all the evil that you have shown yourself through
I'll remember it till the day that I die by your hand

Do I not deserve a peaceful existence?
My life can only end in triumph or tragedy
So if you choose to deny me my natural death
You will know my name before I go

And it will follow you for the rest of your days
like a weight upon your shoulder, it will slowly break your back
it will tear you to pieces.

I won't hide anymore

So do your worst
Do what you will
I won't go quietly

If you take my life in your infinite greed, you will drown on the blood that I leave on the street
And I promise that if you snuff out my flame, you will choke on the smoke that I leave in my wake.
