Have you heard the news?
Im doing what I said I would
So now you say
Boy, I always knew you could
My wildest dreams
Murdered by reality
I gave you all I could give to you
But now Im taking back what belongs to me

I read you like a drugstore book
Howd I ever think you were cool
You got no bait left on your hook
Youre no friend and buddy, Im no fool

Chorus:
Aint nothin you can do about it
Aint nothin you can say
Aint nothin you can do about it
No ones gonna stand in my way

Ive done my time
Ive given up my pound of flesh
So why can't the man seem to understand
That Ive already passed the test

You did your best to keep me down
Tried to make my spirit give in
But Im here to make a big, big sound
Its your turn to lose and it's my turn to win

Repeat chorus

I know you can never go back
Once you turn and walk out that door
Got no time for worries like that
Im not a kid anymore

You did your best to keep me down
Tried to make my spirit give in
But Im here to make a big, big sound
Its your turn to lose and my turn to win

Repeat chorus
