earthbound,

straining to kiss the sun

blazing skies, clarity just out of reach

purpose, direction, a meaning to justify

this relentless existence

arms outstretched, face upturned

new form, chrysalis

to feel the muscles reform below the skin

shifting forward, flight

away from here reborn

this rooted shallow rut

envelopes the senses

choke myself on the bitter taste of ash,

the remnants of others failings

shifting forward, flight

away from here reborn

this rooted shallow rut

envelopes the senses

chrysalis shield me

make me more than what I see

elevate my soul, freedom from this earth

make me more than what I see

elevate my soul, freedom from this disease

reshape these battered broken bones

reshape these battered broken bones

reshape these battered broken bones

reshape these battered broken bones

regenerate these wounds from crawling for all these years

arms outstretched, face upturned

new form, chrysalis

to feel the muscles reform below the skin (x4)

    General CommentI how the words are so descriptive but yeah I can't pull much out of them right now. Sorry they're breaking up. They sound like they would have been cool.

    General Commentif hope dies is not breaking up. they lost their guitarist, aaron conti, to a photography school in colorado; however, they got a new guitarist from canada named fred. none of them are in high school anymore, and they are touring the US this summer with the release of a new cd. they are were signed on diehard records, but now are a part of a new record label started by a member of the band unearth. check out ifhopedies.com for more information.
