Victimhood
I heed the call
To step out of
Victimhood
Has a saintly glow
Holier than thou
It erased my shadow (Shadow)

Only bird’s-eye view
Can help me transcend
This archetype

Oh, who am I
That this has happened to ?
Victimhood
Rejection, it left a void
That is never satisfied
Sunk into victimhood
Felt the world owed me love

Only bird’s-eye view
Can help me transgress
Out of this hole

Who am I
That this has happened to ?
To transgress us beyond our tragedy
Took one for the team
I sacrificed myself to save us
I rejected myself
Sacrificed myself
I felt sorry for myself
To transgress us out of this tragedy
I sacrificed myself
Took one for the team
To transgress us (To save us)
Beyond our tragedy (To save us)
I sacrificed myself

Victimhood
I heed a call out
Of victimhood
Out of, out
Out of
Of victimhood
Here I go now
