Lyrics
The loudest words are the ones unspoken
I got so tired of feeling broken
Without proof but a certainty of knowing
There's a lesson here and I will be growing

Stronger, wiser, tougher, bolder
Kinder, sweeter but no push over
I'm not your victim, not your rat
But I won't be your invisible doormat
I'm tellin' you that
I'm tellin' you that
I won't be your invisible doormat

The time is now and it's time for changing
All my self destructive ways
To my surprise I called your bluff
Cause my soul cried, "Enough is enough!"

I'm stronger, wiser, tougher, bolder
kinder, sweeter but no push over
I'm not your victim, not your rat
But I won't be your invisible doormat
I'm tellin' you that
I'm tellin' you that
I won't be your invisible doormat

Did you expect I'd have no self respect?
Did you forget the laws of cause and affect?
You must have mistaken my sweetness for weakness
You must have mistaken me for somebody else, somebody else

You thought you had this all figured out,
Beyond a shadow of a reasonable doubt
You thought that you could rob me blind,
Rape my heart, fuck with my mind
You must have mistaken my sweetness for weakness
You must have mistaken me for somebody else

I'm stronger, wiser, tougher, bolder
kinder, sweeter but no push over
I'm not your victim, not your rat
But I won't be your invisible doormat
I'm tellin' you that
I'm tellin' you that
I won't be your invisible doormat
