Justin Mandell - "Difficult Battle" lyrics

I know about clean.
I know about you.
I know about what you did to me.
And that is why I think it's very plain to see.
Why I don't want to be like you.
And so I have to fight, I have to try.
I have to fight, I have to try.
What a difficult battle because I am you.

You made me like this.
You make me clinch my fists.
You made me like this.
And I'm about to choose.

You inhibit my maturity.
Promote my insanity.
I'll bet you didn't think.
But I've had soap in my mouth.
And I didn't like the taste of it.
I didn't like the taste of you.

You made me like this.
You make me clinch my fists.
You made me like this.
And I'm about to choose.

Your selfish world is my world too.
Inheritance can be such a bitter thing.
We're both strung out on stupid pride.
Look in my eyes and tell me why.
I have to forget what I have learned.
Learn to love and learn to live.
No thanks to you, no.
