Am I alive or am I just a lie that you have conjured up in your mind
Can I have your soul it's a simple yes or no
I think we both know how this story goes

I can save this one song for you I can promise you this
It hurts me to breathe you've got me shaking at my knees

Trying to make it on my own is proving harder than you will ever know
So lock me up tie me down strip me of everything
That I once had and everything that I have known

So lock me up and tie me down and leave me here to die
And as I decay throw my body in the flames and let me burn

It's taken me so damn long to pick up the pieces and just move on
I'm confident that I'm not losing sleep
