I see lives crash like waves on the shore again and again
In an endless cycle of join and pain
Inside one day your whole life can change innocence torn away
Trust gives way to a thicker pain
A shield from pain? Or a trap that keeps it all in.
They tried to break me down, I had to break away
I woke up from that night mare to start another day
I want to be a simple man with a little peace of mind
Live a simple life, in a place that's kind
I see lives crash like waves on the shore again and again.
No poetry, no symmetry, nothing left inside of me
What happened to that feeling of invincibility?
Broken up caught under the load
Broken down by the side of the road
They tried to break me down I had to break away
I woke up from that nightmare to start another day
