She cries, it's freedom that we need
But I have yet to see a cause to believe
(I need to feel it, please just let me feel alright)
It comes in waves of need
Ten ways to make you bleed before you get to die

Can we give it one more shot
Have we thrown all hope away?
Does it have to be this painful
Just to make it through?

This is not our requiem
Were wasting time as victims
Why spend our lives on bended knee
Choosing not to be free?

He sighs, Im quickly burning out
All thats left of me are jaded memories
(I need to feel it please just let me feel alright)
If what I could have been
If I had only been less of what they wanted

Can we give it one more shot
Have we thrown all hope away?
Does it have to be this painful
Just to make it through?

This is not our requiem
Were wasting time as victims
Why spend our lives on bended knee
Choosing not to be free?

And were still here, all together and all alone
Consumed with fear that one day well discover
How empty weve become

Restricted and ashamed
We crave what they provide us
So well never feel alone

Can we give it one more shot
Have we thrown all hope away?
Does it have to be this painful
Just to make it through?

This is not our requiem
Were wasting time as victims
Why spend our lives on bended knee
Choosing not to be free?

I am now just learning to breathe
