You say that I’m bad since the day I was born,

I say that you’re foolish for drowning in scorn.

You say I’m a vixen and that I shall be damned,

I can’t help but laugh because I don’t understand.

You judge me so quickly; I see it comes naturally,

Your words are like knives killing me rapidly.

Call me a vixen smear my name on the floor,

Call me whatever, I don’t care anymore.

I know there was a point when my heart was rotten,

There was a time, I know, but it’s been forgotten.

You can call me evil; you can call me a disgrace,

I call you the coward whom the truth he can’t face.

A femme fatale and I’m bad to the bone,

I didn’t become like this on my own.

So tell me how you feel, tell me what you see,

Your moment I won’t steal just give it all to me.

Scream, yell, and hit me if you please,

Whatever it is I’ll take it with ease.

My heart is bulletproof, and so…

You can’t manipulate me, no.

You are pathetic and very abusive, too,

So call me a vixen for standing up to you.
