lyrics

I see you've lost all hope
Why flee
What are you afraid of brother
You know we were going places
Now you leave I'm fending on my own

And when I look back
I try to relax
But I feel the walls are closing in
I'm running blind as the lights start to dim

So I tell myself
Its easy to quit the very life you choose
Don't sit on the shelf
I will not surrender
So I tell myself
Its easy to quit the very life you choose
Don't sit on the shelf
I will not surrender

Tryna wipe my slate
As the splinters
Dig deep
Why'd you hesitate
What are you afraid of brother
And now I see
I must escape
Busy streets
To break free
From all of the
Misery

And when I look back
I try to relax
But I feel the walls are closing in
I'm running blind as the lights start to dim

So I tell myself
Its easy to quit the very life you choose
Don't sit on the shelf
I will not surrender
So I tell myself
Its easy to quit the very life you choose
Don't sit on the shelf
I will not surrender
