Place these fingers over the holes in your flesh
But you'll never find the pieces that you lack

Searching nameless city streets and abandoned hearts
For your salvation
Nothing will save you here
Borrowed time, forgotten miles, faceless tragedy
This lost city's demise

We'll be the ones to break this mold
You've spent way too long to get this wrong
Your perception and your walls between everything
Catch your breath, you'll make amends
You'll be free at last

This point of despair
Revealing force with no acceptance of the present situation
This place of desire deserted with no one but yourself to blame

[Chorus]

You're making promises you can't keep
Turning your back
Too weak to stand up or face the road of the righteous
Your wrists unbound, it's in your hands... now

[Chorus]

Your chance for reinvention
Your chance for reconnection
Your chance for this redemption
You'll be free at last

Wrists unbound, it's in your hands... now
Your wrists unbound, it's in your hands

    My Interpretationi love trying to find hidden meanings in songs. that being said, one good hidden meaning in this song is a woman that wants a sex change. hear me out...

    Place these fingers over the holes in your flesh (finger in the snatch)
    But you'll never find the pieces that you lack (a penis)

    Searching nameless city streets and abandoned hearts for your salvation. Nothing will save you here (trying to find a doctor that will preform sex change)

    We'll be the ones to break this mold (mold being the woman's form)
    You've spent way too long to get this wrong (spent too long thinking about the operation)
    Your perception and your walls between everything (perception of being 'a man in a woman's body)
    Catch your breath, you'll make amends (dont stress, the sex change will come)
    You'll be free at last (finally be a man)

    i don't actually believe that thats what the song is about, but its just funny to think about it. awesome song though, one of the best off of lividity.
