His wings have been clipped and yet he can fly
He's too old to try and too young to die
He's lost in fear's path and he's far from home
He's found in times past and he's all alone

Now the price it seals his fate
Now his mind reels too late
In a moment his life has changed
All is lost if time can't wait

Don't hold me down, don't break my mind
Don't shut the door, I've still got time
Don't lock me out, don't cut my line
Don't take me now, it's not my time

The pain that he feels is born in his mind
The hand that he deals is dealt to the blind
He'll be spent inside when his time is done
His last thought is gone, his last breath is drawn

Now his mind is torn in two
and there's nothing he can do
All his dreams have bled and died
His tears have long been cried

Don't hold me down, don't break my mind
Don't shut the door, I've still got time
Don't lock me out, don't cut my line
Don't take me now, it's not my time

Now the price it seals his fate
Now his mind can't think straight
In a moment his life has changed
There he stands at heaven's gate

Don't hold me down, don't break my mind
Don't shut the door, I've still got time
Don't lock me out, don't cut my line
Don't take me now, it's not my time

Not my time! Not my time!
(x4)
