i lift my head up off the ground
there's not much left here for me now i'm older
and there's not much for me to say
i haven't said too much since i got colder
and i'm still pickin the same fight
two hundred years i've known i'm right
yet through the darkness there's no light
there can't be day without the night

i've justified my crimes
too many goddamn times
you laugh and say it's fine
as long as i'm not trying to be cruel

and now i'm runnin for my life
i know i'll never be a wife or mother
so there's no reason left to stay
i'm sorry you'll just have to find another

i lie awake at night
pretending i was right
all those who watch my flight
will know that i will go and still be cruel
