At first I was afraid, I was petrified Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong And I grew strong And I learned how to get along And so you're back From outer space I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face I should have changed that stupid lock, I should have made you leave your key If I'd known for just one second you'd be back to bother me Go on now, go, walk out the door Just turn around now 'Cause you're not welcome anymore Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye? You think I'd crumble? You think I'd lay down and die? Oh no, not I, I will survive Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive I've got all my life to live And I've got all my love to give and I'll survive I will survive, hey, hey It took all the strength I had not to fall apart Kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart And I spent oh-so many nights just feeling sorry for myself I used to cry But now I hold my head up high and you see me Somebody new I'm not that chained-up little person still in love with you And so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free Well, now I'm saving all my lovin' for someone who's loving me Go on now, go, walk out the door Just turn around now 'Cause you're not welcome anymore Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye? You think I'd crumble? You think I'd lay down and die? Oh no, not I, I will survive Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive I've got all my life to live And I've got all my love to give and I'll survive I will survive Oh Go on now, go, walk out the door Just turn around now 'Cause you're not welcome anymore Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye? You think I'd crumble? You think I'd lay down and die? Oh no, not I, I will survive Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive I've got all my life to live And I've got all my love to give and I'll survive I will survive I will survive

You've really said it now Really did it now Trump is on the rise He's gonna Execute the dream He's gonna Execute the dream Lying as we die What's left to monetize? He's gonna go through those pockets He's gonna go through those pockets They didn't have to die My friend he didn't have to die I watch you lying through your teeth Your white white teeth White white teeth Your children and their white white teeth You're lying and lying and lying and lying and You're a liar But what does that even mean anymore? What do words mean anymore? What's there left to believe anymore Trump's a killer Mitch McConnell, he's a killer He's a killer He's gonna take youre life And gut you like a fish Strung up like a catch, yeah Lying as we die Pence, his eyes blazing What is this? Triumph of the will? America the great I won't sing for you Here it comes Execution Here it comes Take a deep breath now Take a deep breath Take a deep breath You've gotta take a deep breath You've gotta take a deep breath Here they come now with their lethal injections Who are they gonna inject next? The earth? Your mother? Your sister? Your brother?
