I moved up in the world and I won’t look down
Can’t confine me to this town
Pointless words and sleepless nights are the reasons I still fight
You think that life is easy, but being nice was your favorite lie
You took this all for granted, but at the end you didn’t try
To make it worth it and fix these problems
End this hope for a better tomorrow
So now I know who I can trust, and I’ll face the facts that I must move on
So I take a step back and look at my life, no regrets I’ve cut the ties
It’s getting better with every line

I feel like I’m on top of it all, it’s my time to get what I want
I won’t be held back anymore, the decisions are made
These memories will fade

I’ve realized that I never needed you
It was you who held me back from all the great things I can do
I could have made a difference, you should have stayed
But in the end you strayed away
And here I remain strong, even though everything was wrong

It’s my time
I’m on top of it all, I’ll get what I want, and I won’t look back
