I open my eyes, was that real or was I dreaming
I don't hit the ground, but I'm falling forever
I'm close to the edge and I want to just fly away
To silence the voices, is this the only way?

I bring you my dreams that inspire imagination
They are nothing like yours, so I lock them away again
I lie to myself and believe that I'm healing
The higher I climb, the longer I fall

Crossing over burning bridges
There's nothing left of you inside my mind
The hourglass is long and empty
The time has come to break the chains of misery
Crossing over burning bridges
There's nothing left of you inside my mind
The hourglass is long and empty
The time has come to break the chains of misery

I remember skipping rocks across still waters
And I remember chasing colors flying through thin air
And I remember the water shone my first reflection
I can't forget always waiting, I was wishing you were there
You were never, never there

Primadonna, she was sleeping with a stranger again
Godforsaken and the savior hanging on the bedroom wall
Contradictions, they manifest such deep resentmens in me
Transparent one I'm not naive and you, you're not holier than thou
Amen

I'm inside you, I deny you
I surround you, I defy you
Hear the voices, they are godless
No forgiveness, so relentless

In the real world you feel real pain
A never ending war inside, again and again
Are you who you think you are, my life runs through your veins
Try as you will, my son, try
But you will not break the chains of misery

I can feel anger rising like the sun rises every day that I'm here
Now and then you return to open the wounds again and again
Screaming voices conspire and critique every breath I take
I remember as a child I said I loved you
I remember the silence was so deafening

I'm inside you, I deny you
I surround you, I defy you
Hear the voices, they are godless
No forgiveness, so relentless

In the real world you feel real pain
A never ending war inside again and again
Are you who you think you are, my life runs through your veins
Try as you will, my son, try
But you will not break the chains

I've been living to die, I'm dying to live
I'm here to break the chains of misery
Silence the voices, the critical voices
The psyche of a child is a ravenous thing
When nothing's ever good enough, there's so much suffering

Why do we run, there's no place to hide
Tangled in the strand that can bury us alive
Yes it can
The spiral is up and down, twisting our fate around
The bird in the cage sings a beautiful song
Because it's bound by the strand

Alive in me, voices lie to me
It's never good enough for them
They always want more than I am
You put your hand in the cage
Now you're bleeding and the bird is free
Apathetic apologies are the offerings
As the world grows so cold suddenly
You're just another lost soul, so join me, join me
Cause misery loves company

Crossing over human bridges
A child is born, he's looking up to me
We're skipping rocks across the waters
That rise above the depths of woe is me

Crossing over human bridges
A child is born, he's looking up to me
(Why do we run, there's no place to hide
Tangled in the strand that can bury us...)
We're skipping rocks across the waters
That rise above the depths of woe is me
(The spiral is up and down, twisting our fate around
The bird in the cage sings a beautiful song cause it's bound...)

Why do we run, there's no place to hide
Tangled in the strand that can bury us alive
Yes it can
The spiral is up and down, twisting our fate around
The bird in the cage sings a beautiful song
Because it's bound by the strand.
