Break The Chain

from Alive In New Light by IAMX



I’m sinking with America
All smothered by my conscience and fear
I’m aching in the strangest places
Can’t feel myself with distance

I forget that there’s a world outside
Where I can be weightless in the sunlight
So many vices with me everywhere I go
And they’re serving me to the lions slowly

Baby I feel like I’m alone again
And I’m fading, I know that this is how it ends
Can you help me?
Can you promise that you will carry the pain?
Oh baby, ‘cause I feel I’ll never break the chain

And I repeat the foolish addict’s loop
The boiling over and the keeping it cool
Give me the stage, God knows my life needs staging
What the hell else should I do?
