My Law


I've been struggling 
In a good girl straight jacket 
Time has come to say that's it 
If I spend my life waiting for tomorrow 
I'll wake up one day and it's over 
No-one's gonna come to deliver the goods 
Do it yourself 
Here is the clue 
It takes courage to follow your heart 
But as far as I'm concerned it's free of charge 
So tell me 
Who's stopping you, what's on your way 
Other people's wishes to obey 
Is your purpose to make them feel okay? 
Now who's to blame 
I'll stand behind every word I say
And I don't really care if you see me fail 
I'll make my own miracles 
With base hands I build my own paradise
This is my law
This is my system
This is my force my state my mission
This is my way
This is my vision
And the voice inside my head says
Let all the pressure out
Obey your deepest pleasures
Sacrifice the things you treasure
Life's a creation
I wanna look back at it and feel proud
My criteria 
For good life doesn't originate from materia 
So if you're looking for someone to call naive 
You can stop searching have a look at me 
I say all we need is already here 
But what it means is for your own eyes to see 
I'm not intimidated by threats 
I'll fight for the right to decide for myself 
Cause if you need a scapegoat you're sure to find one 
Rock the boat or you won't get nothing done 
Discard and start from scratch unafraid to leave 
Or turn back 
Been wrong as many times as I've been right 
I've lost the faith but never gave up the fight 
Consequences schmonsequences 
I'll bang my head on the wall till it crumbles
