This song is by Sister Machine Gun and appears on the album Metropolis (1997).

In my desperation, I'll take anything from you
'Cause what I am is what I need and there is nothing I can do
I'm a slave to your frustration and I'm working for this pain
But in the end I'm nothing and it doesn't mean a goddamn thing

I don't want to live like this
I don't want to be like you
I don't need what I don't miss
This is what I've got to do

Well, I don't want to be here, but I just don't have a choice
And I'd like to say a prayer, but I cannot find my voice
Well, I feel I've lived a lifetime and I guess it's just as well
'Cause the life that I've been given is like living in an empty shell

Well, I'm just in denial of the things I cannot do
But everything that I can't have is all because of you
I don't need a guilty conscience, I don't need to be a star
All I need is some redemption, but that just won't get me very far
