Verse 1

One look at the mirror tells me

The same old screeching crunching story

Of you melting my heart with words of steel

And turning it into anything at your will.

Verse 2

But when I dare to take another look,

I realize why I am still in my good books.

It's because I try to fight against the restraints

You tied me with to prove your strength.

Pre-chorus

You perceive me as a weak little girl,

But I can be strong.

And I can stand my ground against

What I know is wrong.

Chorus

So here I stand today,

Declaring a war against

You and your plans regarding my life.

I'm not gonna sit back and

Watch you slice my future

To pieces with that old blunt knife.

I need you to care about me, I want you to be fair.

Take it or leave, I really don't care.

Verse 3

You scream and push me to your feet.

We're like railway tracks that never meet.

We keep bickering back and forth like a swing.

Can we ever come to agree on anything?

Chorus

So here I stand today,

Declaring a war against

You and your plans regarding my life.

I'm not gonna sit back and

Watch you slice my future

To pieces with that old blunt knife.

I need you to care about me, I want you to be fair.

Take it or leave, I really don't care.

Bridge

We're measuring life in different scales.

But you can't mould me into somebody else.

I won't give up the things in which I believe.

I won't change for you, take it or leave.

Pre-chorus

You perceive me as a weak little girl,

But I can be strong.

And I can stand my ground against

What I know is wrong.

Chorus

So here I stand today,

Declaring a war against

You and your plans regarding my life.

I'm not gonna sit back and

Watch you slice my future

To pieces with that old blunt knife.

I need you to care about me, I want you to be fair.

Take it or leave, I really don't care.
