Chokehold

My tears they fall
It’s been a long crawl

Since I’ve been utterly terrified like this

Saw it on the movie screen

It shook me down to my core

What a time it is to look at everything you know and not be so sure

 

How long have I left to go

Before I’m wrapped in a chokehold

It won’t be my story

I’m out to blaze a trail that’s all my own

How long have I left to go

Before I’m left without my soul

If you’ll stand before me

I’m out to blaze a trail that’s all my own

 

Oh, oh

I’m out to blaze a trail

 

Although it hurts

This wisdom that I’ve earned

Won’t you double it up

Fill my cup like you’re drowning out hell

So I won’t become the product of what they’ve done

God forbid I fall to alcohol, the pills, or worse, the worship of myself

 

How long have I left to go

Before I’m wrapped in a chokehold

It won’t be my story

I’m out to blaze a trail that’s all my own

How long have I left to go

Before I’m left without my soul

If you’ll stand before me

I’m out to blaze a trail that’s all my own

 

Oh, oh

I’m out to blaze a trail that’s all my own

Oh, oh

I’m out to blaze a trail that’s all my own
