Vertical Horizon - Shackled Lyrics

Shackled



And it leaves me there without a place to call my own



I know now what shadows can see

There's no point in running 'less you run with me

It's half the distance through the open door

Before you cut me down

Again

Let me introduce you to the end



And I feel the cold wind blowing beneath my wings

It always leads me back to suffering

But I will soar until the wind whips me down

Leaves me beaten on unholy ground again



So tired now of paying my dues

I start out strong but then I always lose

It's half the distance before you leave me behind

It's such a waste of time



[Chorus]

'Cause my shackles

You won't be

And my rapture

You won't believe

And deep inside you will bleed for me



So here I slave inside of a broken dream

Forever holding on to splitting seams

So take your piece and leave me alone to die

I don't need you to keep my faith alive



I know now what trouble can be

And why it follows me so easily

It's half the distance through the open door

Before you shut me down

Again

Let me introduce you to the end



[Chorus]



Though you know you care



[Chorus]



And my laughter

You won't hear

The faster

I disappear

And time will burn your eyes to tears
