Lyrics

You told me I’ll never do any better

If I left I’d lose it all

You took away the shine in the mirror

So I’d lose the sight of my soul

 

How was I to know I would grow so sick?

Lose my voice, lose my mind

I’m standing on the edge of the wall you’ve built

So unsure of the other side

 

I won’t play the victim, not for you

I won’t let you see I’m in pain

Get your out of my system of being used

Suck the poison from my veins

 

I know what I deserve now

And it’s not all the lies you fed me every night

I know the truth now

And I’m taking back all of my stolen light

I won’t play the victim, I won’t play your game

 

You held the gaslight above my head

To lead my astray

Took all the good parts out of me

And left me to fade away

 

You didn’t think I’d show my face again

But here I stand, here I stand

You didn’t want to see me rise again

But I’ve become all that you can’t

 

I won’t play the victim, not for you

You don’t deserve to know I’m in pain

Get you our of my system of being used

Suck the poison from my veins

 

I know what I deserve now

And it’s not all the lies you fed me every night

I know the truth now

And it’s set me free because I’m learning how to fight

I won’t play the victim, I won’t play your games

 

I am no longer scared or afraid

I have grown stronger and you can’t take that away

 

Now I know this is better left behind

Now I know you are better left behind
