So here I am,
Finally sober,
Awakened from coma,
Learning to walk again.
I’m on the brink of a brand new frame of mind,
As the curtain falls around me,
And I finally see the light.

Break away to find your own.
Now I believe,
Conscience lead me home.

If I could start again,
Turn back the hands of time,
I would live my life and not apologise,
When I know I’m not wrong.

So now I’m done with suppressing myself,
for the sake of everyone else,
when they only bring me down.
A new day is rising,
And It's looking bright.
I’m not apologising,
When I know that I'm right.

I’m not your victim anymore,
I’ve found a reason to fight for.

Don’t tell me what to do.
Don’t tell me what to say.
Don’t tell me how to feel.
Don’t tell me it’s ok.
Nothing is alright, nothing is fine.
This is my life.
It’s time to take back what’s mine.

Conscience lead me home.
