The waiting drove me mad
You're finally here and I'm a mess
I take your entrance back
Can't let you roam inside my head
I don't want to take what you can give
I would rather starve than eat your bread
I would rather run but I can't walk
Guess I'll lay alone just like before

I take the poor man's path I must refuse your test
Push me and I will resist
This behaviours not unique
I don't want to hear from those who know
They can buy but can't put on my clothes
I don't want to limp for them to walk
Never would have known of me before
I don't want to be held in your debt
I'll pay it of in blood let, I be wed

I'm already cut up an half dead
I'll end up alone like I began

Everything has chains absolutely nothings changed
Take my hand not my picture spill my tincture

I don't want to take what you can give
I would rather starve than eat your breast
All the things that others want for me
Can't buy what I want because its free
Can't buy what I want because its free
Can't be what you want because I'm

I ain't supposed to be just fun
Oh to live and die let it be done
I figure I'll be dammed
All alone like I began
