lyrics

My knuckles are blue
my lips taste like blood
I was fighting for you
It was almost enough

But they came down with blindfolds blazing
and rocks in their hands
I screamed until my lungs gave out
and they were in my head

When someone takes your mind
They take your very life
Your breath, your feet, your sight
And all your loving
You can try and break away
But you will always misbehave
Until you realize who you are is so much stronger
Than what you've done

My hourglass is speeding
And I always see your face
I know that I could touch it
But I'm too dirty for your grace

You can try and convince me otherwise
But I've not done what I should
I'm a slave to who makes slaves of men
And I'm shackled here for good

When someone takes your mind
They take your very life
Your breath, your feet, your sight
And all your loving
You can try and break away
But you will always misbehave
Until you realize who you are is so much stronger

You are not the choices that you've made
You are not the memories that parade through your mind
You are seen by someone who is greater
And you are loved, you are loved
