lyrics

he bad boys are on the run tonight
scared and hurt us all for the last time
you played our fears in a cruel divide
in fractions, so our hands all were tied
the feelings of a family are dying
the closing of an empty room on all sides
short breath eclipsing a world of crying
this guilt, it could drown our love combined

You are not alone
But no one will save you
Don't let them tie you down
No one can tame you
Don't hand over your reigns
To those who restrain you
Your choice is your voice
So what does it say of you?

I’m just a person trying to survive
don’t hurt me I won’t hurt you
I’m too tired to be mad this time
all I have is room for hope to align
trapped in endless suffering
bodies tired, resolution thick
just when I thought there was nothing believe in
you made me believe that the good guy could still win

You know it destroys you
So how can you fake it?
The battle consumes
How can you break it
Without taking yourself down
You know your way back home
Your choice is your voice

we're pushing through your wall of lies
and started tearing up the whole design
in youth, when you learned, how, to hide
you now know you were practicing for tonight
and everyone can have their equal right
and all the animals, can go, outside
not looking for a neighbor to fight
just focusing on combining all our might

You are not alone
But no one will save you
Don't let them tie you down
No one can tame you
Don't hand over your reigns
To those who restrain you
Your choice is your voice
So what does it say of you?
