lyrics

I’m locked in this prison, staring at the wall
My fate sits beside me and beckons and calls
My heart thinks of nothing but walking out the door
My will isn’t walking, it’s lying on the floor

I can’t stop my mind
I can’t run away
I can’t fight this feeling
That’s holding me hostage again

My eyes have been blinded, my wits have been dulled
All that I wander is this dark grey cell
Everything changes but I stay the same
I hurt those who love me and do it again

I can’t stop my mind
I can’t walk away
I can’t fight this feeling
That’s holding me hostage again

Fear is the ocean I’m drowning in tonight
Hope is the lifeboat that’s barely in sight
Love is the waves that are tearing at my soul
Faith is the reason I’m breathing at all

I can’t stop my mind
I can’t look away
I can’t fight this feeling
That’s holding me hostage again
I can’t close my eyes
I can’t run away
I can’t stop this thing
That's holding me hostage today
