Vertical Horizon Shackled Lyrics

Last updated: 11/21/2008 10:00:00 AM

For so long my life's been sewn up tight inside your hold
And it leaves me there without a place to call my own

I know now what shadows can see
There's no point in running 'less you run with me
It's half the distance through the open door
Before you cut me down
Again
Let me introduce you to the end

And I feel the cold wind blowing beneath my wings
It always leads me back to suffering
But I will soar until the wind whips me down
Leaves me beaten on unholy ground again

So tired now of paying my dues
I start out strong but then I always lose
It's half the distance before you leave me behind
It's such a waste of time

[Chorus]
'Cause my shackles
You won't be
And my rapture
You won't believe
And deep inside you will bleed for me

So here I slave inside of a broken dream
Forever holding on to splitting seams
So take your piece and leave me alone to die
I don't need you to keep my faith alive

I know now what trouble can be
And why it follows me so easily
It's half the distance through the open door
Before you shut me down
Again
Let me introduce you to the end

[Chorus]

Though you know you care

[Chorus]

And my laughter
You won't hear
The faster
I disappear
And time will burn your eyes to tears

I LOVE THIS SONG (Shackled) & THE WHOLE CD! | Reviewer: Cheryl Klaver | 11/21/2008

I have always liked your music and love this CD! I knew I made a good choice when I was watching an episode of CSI (the original show) and saw one of the investigators hold up your CD (the one with the lady doing a walk-over). Hopefully a whole lot of other people noticed it too and went out to buy it. All the best to the band in any future releases.
