What's the point in wasting time
Dwelling on all of the battles that I've fought
Took me ten whole years to set myself up
Now I'm taking ten more to connect the dots
I don't have to belong to a man
And I don't have to be let down
But I'm running out of chemicals to hold me over
And I'm out of excuses to fuck around
Now you don't believe me
When I say I'm getting out
So I put myself back on that roof
With a table, a notebook, and a bottle of red
I try hard not to use that night as proof
But I can't drown out the echo of what you said
He said, "There's gotta be a way to make it right
Gotta be a way to make this not a fight.
Girl, I can make you exactly as you want,
All I need is part of your life."
But he's got to believe me when I say
That I'm getting out tonight.
I carved away the mold,
Walked ten miles on my toes
The pain never makes me look back
Put out one more cigarette
It's better go, or better dead
Than hiding in the shadow you've cast
