We Are The Movies – The Best Revenge Is Living Well lyrics

Don't call it a crisis
Just tell me how
My questions cause the alarms to sound in your head
Your logic's paper thin
Discourse is sinking in

So the thing you find so rebellious
Is that I'm finally in the space to breathe on my own
Shedding thoughts, untying knots
The sleepers always hate the wide awake

Don't say you'll pray for me anyway
I'm finally happy

[Chorus:]
Your talking points they have no voice
I'm left here with no other choice
To my own self be true
And as your judgement calls are blurring
I find your lack of faith disturbing
You say I'm lost, I've found myself
But if I can see the truth tell me why can't you

Let's call it a process
One step at a time
Compose yourself and prepare to hear what I say
About my change in sight
Redemption's worth the fight
Cause all around me I can see the souvenirs
All the remnants of a life held back by a life of shame and fear
You were wrong to think I'd stay in my shell
And the best revenge is living well

Don't say you'll pray for me anyway
I'm finally happy
I'm tearing pages from the books I hate
You lost the right to say
I'm finally happy

To my own self be true
To my own self

Don't say you’re happy when I know you're not
Backtrack and act like you just forgot
Just open your eyes and see it's easier to place the blame on me

Don't say I'm wrong when I know that I'm not
When I've learned some independent thought

Your talking points they have no voice
I'm left here with no other choice
To my own self be true

The best revenge is living well
