  • Cover my ears and close my eyes
    Just long enough to stop the noise
    Go on take everything and throw it away
    But I will use my voice

    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)

    Drown every truth in an ocean of lies
    Label me bitch because I dare to draw my own line
    Burn every bridge and build a wall in my way
    But I will use my voice

    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    Whether you like it or not, you're gonna take what I got
    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    If we can't talk about it, we'll just keep drowning in it
    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    Give me credit or not, I give a lot, give a lot
    But don't you speak for me
    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    No, don't you speak for me

    Never mind me, I'm a waste of your time
    I'm never gonna fit in the box that you need
    And I can read between the lines, yeah
    Gather your friends and wave your gun in my face
    But I will use my voice

    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    Whether you like it or not, you're gonna take what I got
    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    If we can't talk about it, we'll just keep drowning in it
    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    Give me credit or not, I give a lot, give a lot
    But don't you speak for me
    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    No, don't you speak for me

    Whether you like it or not
    Whether you like it or not
    Whether you like it or not
    Whether you like it or not

    One day soon
    It's gonna fall back on you
    No more lies
    We're gonna break right through
    Like it or not

    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    If we can't talk about it, we'll just keep drowning in it
    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    Give me credit or not, I give a lot, give a lot
    But don't you speak for me
    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    No, don't you speak for me
    (Oh oh, oh oh oh oh)
    Don't you speak for me (whether you like it or not) Writer/s: Amy Lee, Deena Jakoub, Jen Majura, Tim McCord, Troy McLawhorn, Will Hunt
