You can't go backwards, you must go forward
You have not been what you could be
When you are the only one that enslaves you
Then you're the only one that can set you free
Don't run away, question the answers
Live you life like it's on fire
You're one mistake is to think you've made one
Don't run away
You can't have mountains without the valleys
You can't go high if you won't go deep
You can't do over what you've done already
Expecting something new to see
I will not be bought, not be caged
Won't stay behind my walls where it is safe
No, I'm tired of trying to compensate for you
For you...
