Track Name: Stories (Single)
In the ashes of the bridges you've burned,
There's a flower still gripping the earth.
If these ruins had something to say,
They'd tell me that I am to blame.
I've scraped up and bruised my knees,
from begging like a stray at your feet.
Now I'm breaking, I'm pulling apart,
With a bullet sent straight to your heart.

I'll fight like a lion this time,
Not the orphan you took from the cold.
Cut the wires and sever the cords,
I don't need them to breathe anymore.

There's a garden that's blooming inside,
And it's begging to breathe in the light.
I'm a ship that has chosen it's course,
And I'll keep it through wind and through storm.
And I know where I've thrown in my lot,
Like the gallows or the firing squad.
These are weapons on the tip of my tongue.
I've held my fire for far too long.

I'll fight like a lion this time,
Not the orphan you took from the cold.
Cut the wires and sever the cords,
I don't need them to breathe anymore.
I'm sick of just standing in line,
And watching my heroes all die.
I'm wiser and a little more bold,
My story just hasn't been told.
