I step into time,
The face smiling back at me through the mirror there,
It isn't mine,
I find this path I'm on going nowhere.
Here comes the second hand,
Why does the minute hand have to move so slow?
I take my one final stand,
Part of me just goes with the flow.
Metal wings, won't you please stop being so heavy?
Metal wings, I want to take flight.
Why won't you let me sail away?
This heart of mine yearns for the wind.
Lips that part, but do not speak a single word,
I feel something rise deep inside of me.
It's like a double-edged sword.
I want to be free.
I don't understand this hurt deep inside.
I'm playing with fire.
Sometimes I just want to say good-bye.
It becomes my desire.
Metal wings, why won't you let me go?
Metal wings, why do you weigh me down?
Please, release me from this prison.
Free me from this place.
