You thought you could take me
You thought you could break me
All the things you said
The things you wished would go to my head
Because for years the voices of you and your friends would echo in my mind
Echoing "Kill yourself"
As I lay down to sleep for the night
Worthless, no point, no friends
All alone, no start, just the end
You shut me down before I had the chance to speak
You'd trash me if even a little sound leaked
But here I am today and I can take some pain!
But something tells me you won't try again
I got low
I didn't see a way out
I thought I was gone
And then I realized
I don't need your f*cking acceptance
And that gave me the inspiration to get the motivation to be excellent!
You were just an obstacle in my way
So I knocked you down
Because not this time, this time you won't have your way
So try me on for size
You were five foot
I was four eleven
Now I'm five seven
I ain't six foot but...
You didn't grow
So it's like you're David and I'm Goliath
Except this time the story ends in a different way
No I didn't stoop to your level
I didn't indulge in pointless violence and empty acts of revenge
I just started doing me
And you did you
All I ever did was stay true
No more hiding my real self just because you don't like me
Because boy, there are other people that like me
You got nervous when you saw me
You were scared
I was scared too
All those years ago
But now the shoes on the other foot
So how's it feel to be the shrimp?
To be the one now who's getting slapped around by people like a prostitute who didn't earn enough for her pimp?
It's humiliating but even though it seems excrutiating I'd say you earned it, deserved it
Because Karmas a b*tch-...
