lyrics

I rest my head on my door
cover my ears and whisper, "no..."
as bottles broke
shut out my fear by thinking
just another day and we'll both go
to a safer place
well I taught myself: ain't nothing in having faith
well I watched my life in slow-mo
and it played...

a killer cutting eyes
the Mona Lisa with the soulless smile
derived and out of style
I trade my soiled life
out on the fields and in this moonless night
I pray a little poem
I pray that moon of day will sow my soul
and that sound outside
oh it's heaven at the door

Chorus:
what kind of brother was I
when I watched my brother die?

so bring your flaming knives
I've got the damned the doom
they're on my side and ready to hit the floor
let's dance this coiled line
we'll hear the moaning of the serpent's spine
and hope to god it dies
well I'm leaning on the holier side

Chorus

I want to break these shackles
I want to hold my hands up high
towards the sky
(x2)

Chorus (x2)

(gang vox: I want to break these shackles)
