I'm sitting alone on the edge of the water

Looking over all I have not done

And now it's too late to change

To tame the animal I have become

But as I pull at the restraints, binds come unglued

The rules have left me so what am I to do?

So what if you saw the darker side of me?

Could you help me through, help me to see

There is a better way to live with this rage

That someday tamed, I could leave this cage

I've let so many things pass me by

Eyes fixed on the ground instead of the sky

No more stars for me to wish upon

Dreams break, the hope is gone

I don't want your empathy inside of me

This really is the way I want my life to be

This is what I've allowed myself to become

It doesn't feel good to know what I've done

But as I pull at the restraints, binds come unglued

The rules have left me so what am I to do?

So what if you saw the hidden side of me?

Please help me to let go of what I see

I don't know if I can handle my rage

Don't know if it'll ever be safe to leave my cage

So what if you saw the darker side of me?

Could you help me through, help me to see

There is a better way to live with this rage

That someday tamed, I could leave this cage

The angels I meet fall with broken wings

Dead inside, can we lose everything?

Maybe someday tamed, I can let go

Maybe someday tamed, I'll let you know
