  • Don't cry victim to me
    Everything we are and used to be is buried and gone
    Now its my turn to speak
    Its my turn to expose and release whats been killing me

    I'll be dammed fighting you, it's impossible, impossible!
    Say goodbye, with no sympathy!

    I'm entitled to overcome
    Completely stunned I'm numb
    Knock me down throw me to the floor!
    There's no pain I can't feel no more
    I'm entitled to overcome, overcome

    Finally see whats beneath
    Everything I am and hope to be
    Cannot be lost

    I'll be dammed fighting you
    You're impossible, impossible!
    Say goodbye with no sympathy!

    I'm entitled to overcome
    Completely stunned I'm numb
    Knock me down throw me to the floor
    There's no pain I cant feel no more
    I'm entitled to overcome, overcome!

    (Overcome!) You'll never know what I was thinking before you came round
    Take a step, take a breath, put your guard down
    (Overcome!) I cannot worry anymore of what you think of me
    I may be crazy but I'm buried in your memory

    I'm entitled to overcome
    Completely stunned I'm numb
    Knock me down throw me to the floor
    There's no pain I cant feel no more

    I'm entitled to overcome
    Completely stunned I'm numb
    I'm entitled to overcome
    Completely stunned I'm numb
    I'm entitled to overcome
    I may be crazy but I'm buried in your memory Writer/s: MARK TREMONTI, SCOTT STAPP
