Verse 1:
Bend but not break
Tempting fate
Taking what’s left of all innocence
Gaining no ground
Beaten down
Taking what’s left of my sanity
Every day another doubt creeps in
And washes over me
Can there be another way ahead
To free me from this pain

Verse 2:
Standing my ground
Feeling bound
Gripped by the urgency of now
Seething within
Patience thin
Surrender what’s left of my dignity

(Oh, Ohhh)
Just get out while you can she says to me
(Oh, Ohhh)
Just end it now and break out while you can

Come take me home
Grab ahold and pull me back from the unknown
This dying fire inside is fading fast
So while the embers glow
Come take me home

Verse 3:
Forsaken and torn
Empty and worn
Clutching what’s left of reality
Broken and lost
At too high a cost
Walking away with what’s left of me



I cannot give the more you take
Too much is gone to recreate
I cannot give the more you take
I can’t, I can’t, I can’t,
I can’t go on
Too much is gone to recreate
I can’t I can’t I can’t,
I can’t go on
