lyrics

I wore shackles on my tongue
Chained to the back side of my teeth
And when the time had finally come
The silence held me, complicit in the deed
I'll be the first to admit
I waited too long to do it
By the time I opened my mouth
We had all fallen to ruin

I miss everything that I lack
I'd give anything to go back
Just to tell you I feel it too
Shackles are meant to be broken

I'll be the fear in your heart
I'll be the chill in your spine
I'll be the shake of your hand
I'll be the doubt in your mind

It's your able body's betrayal
It's the ravages of time
That'll finish what was started
Never was enough to start it
(By your hand)
By ours hands, they're tied

I miss everything that I lack
I'd give anything to go back
Just to tell you I feel it too
Shackles are meant to be broken

They'll try to tell you that your cage is so brilliant
They won't want you to know that there's a difference
Between the lies caught in their throats, and their grip on your own
And when the only way out is to shoulder crushing doubt

I miss everything that I lack
I'd give anything to go back
Just to tell you I feel it too
Shackles are meant to be broken
