CHORUS
What would it take
to break the chains?
What would it take
to end the pain?
What would it take
to turn away?
What would it take
to make me stay? (2x)

VERSE ONE
I don't recall
anything at all
because I can't resist
an escape from this.
No help from you,
You had to think it through
and try to deceive me,
fuck your philosophy.

CHORUS
What would it take
to break the chains?
What would it take
to end the pain?
What would it take
to turn away?
What would it take
to make me stay? (2x)

VERSE TWO
I do believe
I'm left to grieve
but I won't look back
at all the things I lack.
Just makes me think
Teetering on the brink
to always wear a frown
my world is upside-down.

CHORUS
What would it take
to break the chains?
What would it take
to end the pain?
What would it take
to turn away?
What would it take
to make me stay? (2x)

VERSE THREE
I refuse to fall
better than no life at all.
I will be strong
I can't bear to say so long.
But you're so bold
to leave me in the cold.
When will you let me in?
I'm frozen in my skin.

CHORUS
What would it take
to break the chains?
What would it take
to end the pain?
What would it take
to turn away?
What would it take
to make me stay? (2x)

KEYBOARD & PERCUSSION SOLO

RAP-ROCK INTERLUDE
At that moment, it came to me
that I no longer wanted to be
I just wanted to see
how the world would look without me.
All I see is a world of pain
Locked indoors to escape the rain
The sun has died with no remain
Effigies of sorrow and pure disdain
At times, we think it'd be great
to take in our hands, our own fate
Take it from me because I relate
No matter how bad, there's no debate
Out there someone has it worse
and though it seems like its a curse
Pay attention to my verse
'cuz you don't wanna be the passenger in a hearse
Live your life, hold your head up high
Wipe away that tear, you'll no longer cry
Take a deep breath, release that sigh
and know there is no future if you die

CHORUS
What would it take
to break the chains?
What would it take
to end the pain?
What would it take
to turn away?
What would it take
to make me stay? (2x)
