lyrics

This whole life keeps on rising like a flame before my eyes
And every move I make drives a nail deeper in to this wooden box
I found out on my own there ain't nothin in this world that's coming free
The path I've had to walk takes a toll and it's taken every part of me

And I know these two hands don't need no law
They just need something big enough to hold
These old bones don't tell no lies
They've been broken for freedom and now it's time to rise

Thirty years is all it takes to kill the heart of a man
Thirty more and he goes back to the dust where he began
I'm somewhere in between but I refuse to live like I'm already dead
I don't need no chains so take that heavy yoke of guilt right off my back

Cause I know these two hands don't need no law
They just need something big enough to hold
These old bones don't tell no lies
They've been broken for freedom and now it's time to rise
