We were more than two ships passing
No, you had your anchor down
And I was chained to your vessel
Struggling to get free some how

Then Light pierced the dark and gave me hope
The Truth broke me out and let me know

I’m better off without you
I’m better off without you
I’m better off without you
I’m better off without you

Like the tireless swing of a pendulum
Lord, we went back and forth
And yeah you won some battles
But you didn’t win the war

There’s no chance your grasp can hold me now
No that’s one thing I just can’t allow

Cause I’m better off without you
I’m better off without you
I’m better off without you
I’m better off without you

I’m getting back what you stole from me
A life without shackled arms
Living knowing you’re behind me
And you hate that’s where you are

But I won’t turn back, I’m steady yet
My course is straight ahead it’s clear and set

And I’m better off without you
I’m better off without you
I’m better off without you
I’m better off without you
