Verse 1

You don't recoil inside your shell,

Like a fragile little snail,

Or like a weary turtle.

Oh no, you are a fire-arm.

So deadly, you did me harm,

To which I will come to terms.

Chorus

But I don't have a shell like you,

I have nowhere to hide when I feel blue.

I embrace my wounds and I grow strong.

If you think I'd break, you're dead wrong.

Verse 2

I won't recoil inside my shell,

Just because of one farewell,

Screw you and your fairytale.

Oh no, I am a fire-work,

I shine bright when it gets dark,

And your scar won't make a mark.

Chorus

And I don't have a shell like you,

I have nowhere to hide when I feel blue.

I embrace my wounds and I grow strong.

If you think I'd break, you're dead wrong.

Bridge

I'm unbreakable, I only crack,

I only hurt a bit from the lack.

But when it all fades to black,

My heart shows off its six-pack.

Chorus

Cause I don't have a shell like you,

I have nowhere to hide when I feel blue.

I embrace my wounds and I grow strong.

If you think I'd break, you're dead wrong.
