Taken underneath the covers,
Seized from purpose in our lives,
Temptations rising, you're losing your grip,
Confide and distraught,
Is there any way, any way, out of, out of here
Under pressure, heart beat racing,
Keep running, don't look back,
Out of control, lights escaping,
Can't feel my hands upon my face
It's time to wake up and realize they're gone, one by one.
Every minute of every hour they're sold, one by one.
I endure all the constant abuse,
Can anyone out there hear me?
Shackled my feet, imprison my mind.
There's no escaping. Face first on the ground.
My memory is fading away.
Can't speak my name, can't remember the days.
It's hard to speak when I'm so afraid.
Are you now consumed by guilt, or would you feel the same.
Thrown to the floor, hands and knees, bruised and torn.
With no pleasure in sight, left to feel nothing but empty.
As hours turn from days to weeks, I watch the time go by.
Just please don't waste away my bones.
Take my bones.
And every second I wish I could see the end of this,
To see the end of this!
Open the flood gates, we'll open up the flood gates,
Watch as they pour in, we'll watch as they pour in,
The numbers are growing, they're constantly growing,
The sky will not open, heavens no where to be found.
I was promised a life but in return it was taken from me.
