Now I'm standing
On my own again
What a feeling
To let go of something
Blood from the vein
Keeps me captive here and ashamed
I'm, on the wire
Losing sight of what I once truly desired

And I don't know
Why I even try
When my sheltered heart
Lives a lie

Now I'm dancing
On my own two feet
What a feeling
To be let down
Denied the controls
All the tensions taking its toll
I'm, I'm on fire
Losing sight of what I once truly desired

And I don't know
Why I even try
When my sheltered heart
Lives a lie

I'm living a lie
Leaving your lies
Lies

Hide from the clones
All their sentences have gone cold
Talk, it gets cheap
Turn the volume down and laugh yourself to sleep

And I don't know
Why I even try
When my sheltered heart
Lives a lie

I'm cutting all ties
From leading your life
Lies

    General CommentOh wow. This song is amazing, especially after a shitty break up. When he talks about clones... all the girls are the same. Oh I know this too well. Thank you Sinch; you said it better than I could have ever said.
