Antigone Rising

i have made a beautiful discovery. its now my new favorite CD. these are they lyrics to one of my favorite songs. its about loving a woman who doesn't need anyone. she's a survivor who lives on her own terms. i think the reason why i like this song in particular is because i wish i could be that person. i want to be strong and not need anyone, but have someone somewhere who needs me. i am amazed by these girls; the power in their music and the reality of their lyrics.

SHE'S NOT INNOCENT

He casts a shadow down the block
he can't remember
Just how to start or when to stopfight or defend her
He shines the light into the dark and empty corner
right where the past had left its mark
Too late to warn her.

Chorus:But she's fine
she's not innocent
She's fine in all her discontent
She knows it's always been the same.
It'll always be that way.

He holds the secret in his fist
a burning ember
To stay or go now that's the twist
hate or befriend her.

Chorus 2:But she's fine
she's not innocent
She's cool in all her discontent
She knows it's always been the same

She's fine
she's not ignorant
She knows there's no main event
She's fine
It's always been the same
(bridge)It'll always be thatway
It'll always be that way...be that way...
(repeat 1st half of chorus)She's fine
she don't give a damn
You don't have to understand
She knows it's always been the same
and she'll always be that way.
