LYRICS:

I'm so sick
of writing these words that don't mean
anything to anyone
or even to myself
at all. (Give it up!)

Why do I keep putting myself down?
Why can't, for once, I just be proud?
I'm writing it all down
Just to throw it out
Along with what I thought was my best.
I'm writing it all down
Just to throw it out
Let it burn with all the rest.

I'm so sick, sick
Sick of the way
I compare myself to others.
I'm so tired of the day to day
Keeping my head under water.
I'm starting to hate (hate)
Hate the way I criticize myself
I'm trying to change
And not be scared to ask for help.

With the pen in my hand
Pushing ink to the page
(with one more line)
I'm almost done,
but then my thoughts start to speak...
"It doesn't matter now that this finally off your chest.
These words will burn, just like all the rest."

I'M DOING THIS FOR MYSELF.

FUCK!

I'm finally keeping every single word
hoping I will be heard.

I'm so sick of writing these words
that don't mean anything to anyone at all.
I'm so tired of fighting myself,
being my own downfall.
I'm learning to love myself
And I'll take the time I need.
In the end, I'm the only one
who knows what's best for me.

I watch the ink take to the page
with one more l one - this is finally off my chest.
I'm writing it all down.
Not throwing this one out.
These words won't fail me now.
No, I'm not staying down.
I'm not down and out.

These words won't fail me now.
