You got some kinda chip on your shoulder
You got the world on your back
Walking around like everybody owes you something
Like you're some kinda something else
But you've been building this wall of denial
For so long now it seems like there ain't no turning back
But soon enough it's going to come crumbling down
Then you're gonna know what it feels like to be by
Yourself
Cause I will not, I will not let you shatter me
I will not let you shatter me

Yeah you think you've been fooling me by saying you're ok
When inside I know there's so much anger you can't even
Walk straight
So don't come crying to me baby when you finally decide
It's time to get some help
Cause I've been trying to help you for so long now
And I have sacrificed enough of myself
And I will not, I will not let you shatter me
I will not let you shatter me

You may think I'm being greedy
Well for once this might be the case
But I'm a bonafide independent superhero
And I tell you your truth right to your face
I tell you the truth right to your face
I will tell you the truth right to you face
You will not, I will not let you shatter
I will not, I will not let you shatter me
