lyrics

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
And not the orphan you took from the cold.
I'll cut the wires and sever the cords.
I don't need them to breath anymore.

There's a garden that's blooming inside
And it's begging to breathe in the light
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
And not the orphan you took from the cold.
I'll cut the wires and sever the cords.
I don't need them to breath 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.
