lyrics

You may not have noticed as I’m sitting in your prison —
there’s a part of me that you’ll never reach (never reach)
In this world that you control, where you’re busy being king
well there are subtle things that you just won't see (just won't see)
Tearing off my skin and running voltage through my bones
of course it’s obvious - that I’m gonna scream (gonna scream)
But if you think I’ll kiss your ring or take your stupid oath
you should know, you should know, you should know…

You’re never gonna get the better of me
You’re never gonna change the things I believe
You can try until the end — But I’ll die before I let you win
You’ll never ever ever get the better — the better of me

Lying on my back I watch the light stream through the cracks
and bring reminders of what waits for me outside (just outside)
Pictures of my life are always swirling through my mind
so you can tempt me with the things I'm denied (I'm denied)
And though I miss my daughter’s eyes and chapters of her life
I wonder who she’ll see when she looks back at me (back at me)
So if you think I’ll kiss your ring or take your stupid oath
you should know, you should know, you should know…

You’re never gonna get the better of me
You’re never gonna change the things I believe
You can try until the end — But I’ll die before I let you win
You’ll never ever ever get the better — the better of me

I was born onto this land so I know
I was born under these stars so I know
You can never take what’s mine away from me (no no no)

You’re never gonna get the better of me
You’re never gonna change the things I believe
You can try until the end — But I’ll die before I let you win
You’ll never ever ever get the better — the better of me
