  1. Not a Victim

From the recording Not a Victim - Single

Lyrics

I'll never be a victim
I'm not a victim

I've wasted half of my life
Casting the best of my heart to the swine
I was burned with my world on the line
Almost lost it all in the wake of a lie
I've been beaten and screamed at and shamed
The ones who I loved put my guilt on display
But if I can't grow from the pain
A glance in the mirror will show who's to blame

What can break me now?
What can break me now?
What can break me?

Our fragile lives have been falling to pieces
It's do or die: it's time to rise up or fade away
Our fragile lives have been falling to pieces
It's on tonight, so let's stand up and fight

I'm not a victim
I'll never be a victim
I'm not a victim

I could say I have more right than most
'Cause I spent ten years with a foot on my throat
(but) I refuse to live on with these ghosts
Or carry this weight everywhere that I go
I could burden myself with their crimes
And label my face with the filth of their lies
Their claim to my soul is denied
Abuses and violence aren't how I'm defined

What can break me now?
What can break me now?
What can break me?

Our fragile lives have been falling to pieces
It's do or die: it's time to rise up or fade away
Our fragile lives have been falling to pieces
It's on tonight, so let's stand up and fight

The ones you trust the most at times can make you feel so hollow
But you don't have to let them take control
The ones you trust the most at times can make you feel so hollow
But you don't have to let them take control

What can break me now?
What can break me now?
What can break me?

Our fragile lives have been falling to pieces
It's do or die: it's time to rise up or fade away
Our fragile lives have been falling to pieces
It's on tonight, so let's stand up and fight

Our fragile lives have been falling to pieces
It's do or die: it's time to rise up or fade away
Our fragile lives have been falling to pieces
It's on tonight, so let's stand up and fight

Fight!
(Let's stand up and) Fight!
