lyrics

When the burdens that we share
Begin to drag us down
They will force our hand into making decisions for which we're unprepared
These phantoms that I hold
So very close to me
I know they spell my doom
Still can I let them go

Am I falling down
Again to bended knee
I won't be the hope that you abandon
To save yourself
Self sacrifice is nothing more than self indulgance

With all the games we've payed
In search of constant change
Will the bridges we have burned cut off our only source of escape
Although I'm well aware
These scars will bury me
And my freedom's in release
Still I can't let them go

Am I falling down
Again to bended knee
I won't be the hope that you abandon
To save yourself
Self sacrifice is nothing more than self indulgance

Hold on tight
Though the waves are crashing in
I swear we'll make it this time
For hope has not abandoned this land

Is it attitdue or aptitude that makes us prone to servitude
With everything that we've been through
Just what the hell are we trying to prove
I am not the only one
No I can't be the only one
Who sees the lives we tend to live and thinks there must be more to it
Wanting more than just to get by
Learn to laugh as well as cry
Learn to hold my head up high and live outside of compromise
I am not the only one
I can't be the only one
Please say I'm not the only one
Please god I can't be the only one

Am I falling down
Again to bended knee
I won't be the hope that you abandon
To save yourself
Self sacrifice is nothing more than self indulgance

Hold on tight
Though the waves are crashing in
I swear we'll make it this time
For hope has not abandoned this land
Hope has not abandoned us
