Ties That Bind
   ------Alter Bridge

I tear on the leash
That keeps me contained and controlled
Let me go
I want to break free
And fight my way out of this hole

One last hope
To rise and break away
Above the faded line
Way beyond the ties that bind

This I know
The risk is worth the gain
It's worth the sacrifice
Way beyond the ties that bind

I run but the chains
Pull me right back to the floor
You control
I rattle the cage
I won't be your slave anymore


You broke me into pieces
Don't tell me what to be
Damn you all I'm gonna find my way
