Neither victim
or survivor
From now on
I'll be a fighter
So tired from
being on the run
Drinking and drugs
are no longer
Scarred and seared
I've lived in fear
Always believingĀ 
my death was near
I'll pick myself up
off the floor
I'll walk away
and close thatĀ 
Battered and bloody
I choose to fight
With strength and will
I'll win tonight
No more living
and crying in fear
From now on
I'll be the thing
that demons fear
