Rebel

rebel

Eight Note

Verse One

You always said I was a rebel looking for a cause,
A Mona Lisa with mascara and a million flaws,
A complex contradiction,
but I was your addiction,
You were up whenever I was down

Verse Two

I won’t apologise cos what you see is what you get,
Don’t patronize me cos it’s something you just might regret,
You always put me down,
But now I’m not around,
So why’s it me who’s always in your head?

Chorus

I need to hit the open road, need to shed this heavy load,
I am stronger now I’m free,
I want to feel the open air, feel the wind rush through my hair,
I am stronger now I’m free,

Verse Three

They say revenge can be the sweetest pill to swallow,
You always said I’d be a tough act for her to follow,
Sometimes you crash and burn,
But that’s not my concern,
We sometimes get the bitch that we deserve.

Bridge

We both knew that this could never last,
Shattered dreams are made from shattered glass,
A complex algorithm,
Fuelled by your ambition,
You chewed me up and then you spat me out.

Outro Chorus

I need to hit the open road, need to shed this heavy load,
I am stronger now I’m free, I will rise up wait and see,
I want to feel the open air, feel the wind rush through my hair,
I am stronger now I’m free, I will rise up wait and see

Outro Rap

Throughout my life I’ve made tough decisions,
To live my life without pre-conditions,
My personal space is my sacred ground,
But there’s always some-one trying to knock me down,
There’s always somebody putting up obstacles,
Telling me that it ain’t possible,
You know life’s a bitch but to win this race,
You gotta stay strong and keep the faith.
