fuck yall xena

Its taken me 27 years to see
If I don’t stand up for myself no one stands up for me
And everyone’s playing games of one for another
But leave the path and you’ll know the shudder
Of cold shoulders by degrees
And getting by on your knees
Til you grow back your power to say no when you mean
I’m not selling my soul to further your dream
And all of your praise and all of your lies
Have faded from vision and into disguise
As I shake off the shackles holding me in
I need no one’s permission to follow Him.
