lyrics

Every night I'm getting flak
For being lazy, talking back
It's murder keeping up the act
I never live my own life

Fooling people for a while
Charm the bastards with a smile
Wishing I could run a mile
I never live my own life

Behind my back you made the plans you had for me
You're aiming at a future that will never be... cos I'm

Fighting for the right to live the way I like
You've taken everything I ever owned
But nothing you can ever do will hold me
I'm fighting for a life to call my own

Going crazy in my room
Suffocating, in a tomb
Can't say what may happen soon
I've got to live my own life

You try to keep me in your debt
Rob me of my self-respect
And crush me till there's nothing left
I've got to live my own life

Behind my back you made the plans you had for me
Still aiming at a future that will never be... cos I'm

Fighting for the right to live the way I like
I feel like I'm a stranger in your home
But nothing you can ever do will hold me
I'm fighting for a life to call my own

Can't stop... got to keep on
Can't stop... got to keep on
