#1
I can't breathe, I can feel the darkness
Wrapping around my throat,
I'll choke upon my words before
I give in to you.

I can't move, I'm paralysed, numb;
Dead to the word, staring at the sun
Left me blinded to your hate, but now
I can feel it, I don't need it.

I can't speak, I need to shout
Against the suffocating silence;
Take this knife and tear the bindings
That cover my mouth.

I just need to break free of all this,
One cut is all it takes to give me
Freedom, all I want is to see
The world for myself, I will sever;

Cut the bond between us,
No longer will you drag me down.
