though I was born into your family,
still I’m a stranger in this land,
the answer to what’s wrong with this picture,
I never quite fit into your plans,
I always longed for your approval,
hoping someday you’d under stand,
+++ but it’s alright now, I don’t need that anymore,
+++ you know it’s alright now, I don’t need that anymore,
+++ finally I know how to end this little war,
+++ I don’t need that anymore

of expectations I could not possibly fulfill,
and every recycled aspiration
is somebody else’s time to kill,
I used to bend in all directions,
but here I stand absolutely still,
+++ and it’s alright now, I don’t need that anymore,
+++ you know it’s alright now, I don’t need that anymore,
+++ finally I know how to end this little war,
+++ I don’t need that anymore..

lately I’m turning into water,
finally I’m slipping through your hands,
and I would not truly be your daughter
if I caved in to your demands,
no longer tied upon this altar,
I’m not your sacrificial lamb,
+++ but it’s alright now, I don’t need that anymore,
+++ you know it’s alright now, I don’t need that anymore,
+++ finally I know how to end this stupid little war,
+++ I don’t need that anymore..
+++ you know it’s alright now..
+++ finally I’ve learned how to end this little war,
+++ I don’t need that anymore…
