Underoath – Hold Your Breath lyrics

[Verse 1]
Head in the clouds
Isn't there some other way?
Feet off the ground
I've fucked up my only escape
God, can't escape

[Pre-Chorus: Spencer Chamberlain & Aaron Gillespie]
I never stood a chance anyway
I never tried that hard
You never listened to the words I say
I fear it, I fear it, I fear it

[Chorus]
Alone at the top of the world
I forgot it was safe down below
I used to be so afraid
Now the darkness it swallows me whole
Alone at the top of the world
Cut the cord let me float far away
I never asked you for this
So don't tell me that I'm to blame

[Verse 2]
I'm not coming down
It's too late, it's too late for me
So just give up now
I've blocked out the sight and the sound

[Pre-Chorus: Spencer Chamberlain & Aaron Gillespie]
Now I'm up here by myself
You never gave a shit
I wish that I was someone else
Do you feel it? You feel it? You feel it?

[Chorus]
Alone at the top of the world
I forgot it was safe down below
I used to be so afraid
Now the darkness it swallows me whole
Alone at the top of the world
Cut the cord let me float far away
I never asked you for this
So don't tell me that I'm to blame

[Interlude]
Hold your breath
Choke on my words
Hold your breath
Choke on my words

[Bridge: Spencer Chamberlain & Aaron Gillespie]
Don't get me started (Hold your breath)
I'm not your pawn anymore (Choke on my words)
I've come all this way alone (Hold your breath)
I'm on my own

[Chorus]
Alone at the top of the world
I forgot it was safe down below
I used to be so afraid
Now the darkness it swallows me whole
Alone at the top of the world
Cut the cord let me float far away
I never asked you for this
So don't tell me that I'm to blame
I'm not to blame
