  • I never believed that I would concede and let someone trample on me
    You strung me along, I thought I was strong, but you were just gaslighting me
    I've opened my eyes, and counted the lies, and now it is clearer to me
    You are just a user, and an abuser, living vicariously

    I never believed that I would concede and get myself blown asunder
    You strung me along, I thought I was strong, but now you have pushed me under
    I've opened my eyes, and counted the lies and now it is clearer to me
    You are just a user, and an abuser, and I refuse to take it

    Won't stand down
    I'm growing stronger
    Won't stand down
    I'm owned no longer
    Won't stand down
    You've used me for too long, now die alone

    Now I'm coming back, a counterattack, I'm playing you at your own game
    I'm cutting you out, a shadow of doubt
    Is gonna hang over your name
    I've opened my eyes, I see your disguise
    I will never see you the same
    I know how to win, before you begin
    I'll shoot you before you take aim

    Now I'm coming back, a counterattack
    A psychological war
    I'm cutting you in, I'm under your skin
    Now I'm gonna settle the score
    I've opened my eyes, I see your disguise
    I will never see you the same
    I know how to win, before you begin
    I'll shoot you before you take aim

    Won't stand down
    I'm growing stronger
    Won't stand down
    I'm owned no longer
    Won't stand down
    You've used me for too long, now die alone

    Won't stand down
    Breaking out
    Won't stop now

    Won't stand down
    I'm growing stronger
    Won't stand down
    I'm owned no longer
    Won't stand down
    You've used me for too long, now die alone

    I won't stand down
