I tear on the leash
That keeps me contained and controlled
Let me go
I wanna break free
And bite my way out of this hole

[Chorus]
One last hope
To rise and break away
Above the fading 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

One last hope
To rise and break away
Above the fading 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

You broke me into pieces
Don't tell me what to be
Damn you all I'm gonna find my way!

One last hope
To rise and break away
Above the fading 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

    Too bad I can't correct the lyrics.
    They should look like this, these lines should be corrected:
    ''I wanna break free''
    ''Above the fading line''
