And I can’t stay back any longer
Hold me back and watch me die
You think this makes me stronger
But I’m telling you I just can’t try

It’s not worth the risk
Of losing all of this
And here I wait
Ready for it to take me over
You’re always late
As if you want me to believe you’re-sober

I hate running
So now I wont move
And all of this
Is not exactly your fault
But you’re the one I choose
To blame
Just cut me free
Just cut me free-

Hiding in the shadows under the moon
I hear hundreds of fervent voices
And they’re coming to soon
Along with all your relentless backstabbing choices

I’m not afraid now
Just stop asking me how
Up in the sky
I see stars, dozens of them
I hear them sigh
But all their voices are now lost in the wind

I hate running
So now I wont move
And all of this
Is not exactly your fault
But you’re the one I choose
To blame
Just cut me free


My mind is bruised enough and
My heart is all cut up
Chasing the quiet stars
In the dark lonely sky
Is where you always find me
Find me in the night
These chains tear at my wrists
I beg you
Get me out of this


I hate running
So now I wont move
And all of this
Is not exactly your fault
But you’re the one I choose
To blame
Just cut me free
