Static Icon – Unite lyrics

Paid My Dues

Spoken:
You can say what you want about me
Wanna do what you want to me
But you can not stop me

I've been knocked down
It's a crazy town
Even got punched in the face in la
Ain't nothing in the world that can keep me from doing what I wanna do

'Cause I'm too proud, I'm too strong
Life by the code that you gotta move on
Feel excited for yourself
And got nobody nowhere

So I...
(Held my head high)
I knew I (Knew I survive)
Well I made it (I made it)
Don't hate it (Don't hate it)
That's just the way it goes
Yeah
Had to make it through
Stand on my own two
I paid my dues, yeah yeah
Tried to hold me down
You can't stop me now
I paid my dues

Spoken:
So like I told you
You cannot stop me
I paid my dues

Now I'm still trusted every day
And people try to mess with Anastacia
Gotta nothing in common
Cause I handle mine
And I thought I better let you know

I'm no punk I can't get down
I don't give a damn about whose around
That was just fine 'til now

So I...
(Held my head high)
Knew I (Knew I survive)
Well I made it (I made it)
Oahh (Don't hate it)
That's just the way it goes
Yeah
Had to make it through
Stand on my own two
I paid my dues
Yeah yeah
Tried to hold me down
You can't stop me now
I paid my dues, yeah

Yeah yeah yeah

It took so long to get me here
But I won't live in fear
Of you trying to steal my shine
But first they wanna build you up
Then they tear you down
It's a struggle, you try to bubble

So I...
(Held my head high)
Knew I (Knew I survive)
Oahh (I made it)
(Don't hate it)
Said that's just the wayyyyy

(Had to make it through)
(Stand on my own two)
I said I paid my, I paid my dues
Yeahhhhh
(Tried to hold me down)
But you can't stop me now (you can't stop me now)
(I paid my dues) I paid my, paid my dues
(I done made it through) oahhh
(Stand on my own two) oh
(I paid my dues) I paid my, I paid my dues
Yeah yeah
(Tried to hold me down)
But you can't stop me now (you can't stop me now)
(I paid my dues) I paid my dues
