ties that bind lyrics – 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

[chorus]
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

[chorus]

you broke me into pieces
don’t tell me what to be
d*mn you all i’m gonna find my way

[chorus]
