Atreyu – Gallows lyrics

This life starts with a heart beat
Is it beat beat beat beat beating me down
Like the loser I am?
I can't help but to see
That success scares the living shit outta me
Like the loser I am

Every time I walk away
Every word I ever say

Restless, chasing shadows
Choices, facing gallows pole
Are you hanging by a thread
Or swinging from the rope?
Don't think we don't see your scars
Are you afraid of who you are

Denial, a subtle burn
Is it burn burn burn burn burning me out
Or feeding the flames?
Spread out the ash, pretend to see
That you can still find some value in me
Or just feed the flames

Every time I walk away
Every word I ever say

Restless, chasing shadows
Choices, facing gallows pole
Are you hanging by a thread
Or swinging from the rope?
Don't think we don't see your scars
Are you afraid of who you are

Oh my God what am I afraid of
Success or not having what it takes?
Oh my God I am afraid of me
And everything that brings

Restless, chasing shadows
Choices, facing gallows pole
Are you hanging by a thread
Or swinging from the rope?
Don't think we don't see your scars
Are you afraid of who you are
Afraid of who you are
Are you afraid of who you are
