There is a pain I face daily
I need you to come set me free
It has become too much
And I'm no longer me

I can't stand who I have become
From my problems I must run
No place to hide, nowhere to turn
My world has come undone

I...must live a life anew
In need I turn to you
I...don't know what to do
As it clutches my breath away

In the bowels of my own fear
I wish that you were here
You can save me now
As long as you are near

I've grown tired of my cell
Living in my own hell
Tired of games, can't stand
The hand I've been dealt

I've had enough

I cannot take what you give
My life is for me to live
I'm breaking free from your chains
And I don't give a shit

You kept me under your control
I couldn't stand it at all
I'm done playing your games
And I will take no more

You had me
Under your power
Now you fail
In this, my hour
You're nothing
I've beaten you
And now I...
Live my life anew

    General CommentThis is one of my songs, it's was written from the point of view of being in love with someone and doing whatever they wished, and then realizing that they were the worst thing that could ever happen to you and wanting out.

    General Commentoh well are you an official band??

    Because umm...I know some people who have a band and their name just happens to be Coldfire...if you just did this for fun then nevermind, but if you didn't and you're still around, it must suck to have a band take your name. It probably doesn't matter anyways.
