Just go away

I'm trapped and I'm looking for a way out
It seems that this is no longer worth it
When the thought of you and I together forever
No longer strikes me as perfect

Trapped in this world of love and hate
Stuck in this redundancy, forced to evaluate
My current situation
I'm basing all my love on the past
But the past won't last

You won't let go
This fucking ball and chain
Has got me acting like your enemy
I don't know what I want anymore

I'm trapped and I'm looking for a way out,
You see, because this is no longer worth it
The thought of you and I, together, forever,
No longer strikes me as perfect

I'm trapped, I'm stuck, I need a way out
I wish I knew what's in your head
It's been too long
Although these thoughts are wrong
I feel this temptation's too strong

You won't let go
This fucking ball and chain
Has got me acting like your enemy
I don't know what I want anymore

Fuck

I gotta snap this, this fucking ball and chain
I gotta snap this, this fucking ball and chain
I gotta snap this fucking ball and chain
I gotta snap this, this fucking ball and chain
Chain, chain, chain

I'm trapped and I'm looking for a way out,
You see, because this is no longer worth it
The thought of you and I, together, forever,
No longer strikes me as perfect

I can't take it anymore
This ball and chain has got me running for the back door
I wish I could go
I wish I could go
I wish I could go
But you won't let go

Chain, chain, chain, chain...

    General CommentPersonally, I'm thinking a failed relationship. Obviously the person that this individual was involved with was abusive and controlling...but hey, that's just me.

    Oh yeah, bad-ass tune. Straightedge Hardcore for life!

    General CommentSwift is one of the most amazing bands i've listened to in a long time. Each one of their songs are played with such raw emotion. Its to bad their not as well known as they should be, but that'll all change soon enough i'm sure when the right people hear these guys. This song explains the singers relationship with a girl he used to be in love with and has been with for quite a while, but now feels he wants to move on with his life but doesnt know how to get out of the relationship because she still wants to be with him and have everything stay the same and hes ready for a change but she doesnt understand why. He needs to break that fucking ball and chain! A very shitty situation to be in, i can tell you, i can relate to the singer here.
    Great song, great band .... everyone needs to check out Swift
