lyrics

I’ve stood on this shore for so long I can’t remember
if I was born here or came with the flow
Across the river I gaze their happy faces
they all oblivious to my roaring storm

All alone, no one can hear me cry for help
from this prison, so far, at once so close
I crave to share their lack of concern
but from this side, the view crushes my hope
Can’t break free, can’t breathe deep
it’s my will to retrieve some kind of peace

To get away, to stay awake, to get out of this cell
It’s not my fault, I didn’t ask for all this shit in my head
Too long I tried to play along; I ain’t let them see my face
But if the tide comes in at last, I’ll certainly drift away

I used to scratch on the wall, one day one mark
but since I ran out of walls, I use my skin
I’ve thought so many damn times I should surrender
I’ve planned so many times how I could flee
Can’t break free, can’t breathe deep
it’s my will to retrieve some kind of peace

To get away, to stay awake, to get out of this cell
It’s not my fault, I didn’t ask for all this shit in my head
Too long I tried to play along; I ain’t let them see my face
but if the tide comes in at last, I’ll certainly drift away

All you fools are prisoners in your delusion of freedom, delusion of freedom
The shackles that you carry are not light, their lie is your prison, their lie is your prison
Turn off your TV and realize the chains that restrain you, your ties are not ribbons!

I’ve stood on this shore for so long I can’t remember
if I raised these walls and then locked me in
Within this fortress made of concrete and iron
I’m all alone but I can feel relief
I’m still here, truth is free
I feel safe, in this cage I stay aware

To choose my fate , to find the way I don’t wanna leave this place
It is my choice, I’m proud of it, I won’t burden with your chains
I see the sun over the clouds, but keep my feet down the earth
And when the tide flush you away... on my shore I will be safe
