For so long my life's been sewn up tight inside your hold 
And it leaves me there without a place to call my own 

I know now what shadows can see 
There's no point in running 'less you run with me 
It's half the distance through the open door 
Before you cut me down 
Again 
Let me introduce you to the end 

And I feel the cold wind blowing beneath my wings 
It always leads me back to suffering 
But I will soar until the wind whips me down 
Leaves me beaten on unholy ground again 

So tired now of paying my dues 
I start out strong but then I always lose 
It's half the distance before you leave me behind 
It's such a waste of time 

[Chorus]
'Cause my shackles 
You won't be 
And my rapture 
You won't believe 
And deep inside you will bleed for me 

So here I slave inside of a broken dream 
Forever holding on to splitting seams 
So take your piece and leave me alone to die 
I don't need you to keep my faith alive 

I know now what trouble can be
And why it follows me so easily 
It's half the distance through the open door 
Before you shut me down 
Again 
Let me introduce you to the end 

[Chorus]

Though you know you care 

[Chorus]

And my laughter 
You won't hear 
The faster 
I disappear 
And time will burn your eyes to tears
