Too Many Shackles, Too Many Chains

from by Our Solace

lyrics

We are striving
Striving to reach the sky
And we are thriving
Thriving in the hell you tried to keep us in.

I never thought I'd see the sun after
having the earth ripped from under me

EVERYDAY, I DREAMED

Everyday I dreamed of being cut from my chains
Taking flight and never looking back

Breaking the cage that holds me
Never seemed possible
BUT NOW
I hold
A shattered lock
A broken key
In hands that will always be free

I hide in darkness no more
I cower to no fucking hand

JUST TRY AND STOP ME

Because we made it
WE ARE FREE

I close my eyes and feel the sun on my face
The breeze on my skin
ON MY SKIN
After so long with no path at all, I look at my feet
And what lays ahead

Because we made it
Because we made it
WE ARE FREE
Because we made it
WE ARE

Free...
