No Longer Under Your False Guilt – a song by “Now Free”

You can press my buttons
You can hurl your vile threats
You can slander me in public
You can beat me ’til I’m just like death.
But I never said a word
I cried myself to sleep
And when I hustled a little strength
I resisted without sin
Yes I may have lost my temper
Yes I may have been pushed against a wall
Yes I had to, for my life,
Get away from your control
You said that I was abusive
You claimed absurd and hurtful claims
Knowing what I hate the most
You made those accusations the same
But now I stand fast
I know now I did no wrong
I know when I had nothing left
I was not the abusive one
I know I am not to blame
I need no longer hang my head in shame
For I am no longer under your game
You can spread all your false allegations
You can try to say my standing up was full of hate
You can try your best to ridicule
My strength to resist was never spate.
For now I know I’m innocent
I am not the one at fault
No matter what happens now in life I know how to behave.
Between me and my God
I have found truth!
Now – you can stop trying to dig my grave.
