lyrics

I was born with a chip on my shoulder
You could see it in my eyes
You told me that it would get better when I'm older
But I know now that it was lies

Growing up I was always on the outside
Gave up at trying to fit in
I played the game of living up to expectations
You set it up so I cant win

So many years with a boot to my neck
I took the beatings like a man
Pressure and patience turned the pain into a diamond
Something you'll never understand

It was the spark that set my soul on fire
Push off a cliff that made me fly
Path of resistance is a hard road to travel
But at least I'll know I tried

I wont forgive and I wont let you soon forget
It may sound strange but I'll be always in your debt
You broke me down and built the man I am right now
I turned out for the worse, I'm better off somehow

I used to think I was alone in this world
These kind of thoughts can drive you mad
And there were times I thought of self-destruction
And how it didn't sound that bad

I'd snuff it out and then my problems are over
Its hard to hear but its the god-damned truth
Don't wanna go out giving you the satisfaction
Just to spite you I keep pushing through

And they'll tell you that you are worthless
I DON'T YOU BELIEVE IT
They'll make you think you have no purpose
I DON'T YOU BELIEVE IT
"Don't pay no mind, just live and die", that was their answer when I QUESTIONED THEM WHY
It's all a con when you scratch the surface
DON'T YOU BELIEVE IT, NO!
