I'm crawling out of my skin
I hope I get under yours
So many times before
But you still wanna know why

I won't just lay down and die
What did you expect
I think that I could guess
But this weight is lifted

And I'm like back from the dead
And I'm feeling kinda strange
I'm not the same
And I think I like the change

Nothing lost, just cut away
Nothing left to hinder me
Pushing on, stronger every day
Leaning into the wind that used to carry me
(Nothing left to hinder me)

The last shot nearly killed me
Eternity lifted me again
(Nothing left to hinder me)
Oh, how I want to be
An offense, an unsettling presence in this life

Why'd you try to take me out?
Why try to keep me down?

To get my eyes off me
Down each ugly street
Too many needs, too many
Souls on their knees

And where have I been?
Too much is me and mine
Too much is wasting time
With the cares of this life

And now I understand
And I'm, I'm on my way
I feel like a man
And I, I think I like the change

Nothing lost, just cut away
Nothing left to hinder me
Pushing on, stronger every day
Leaning into the wind that used to carry me
(Nothing left to hinder me)

The last shot nearly killed me
Eternity lifted me again
(Nothing left to hinder me)
Oh how I want to be
An offense, an unsettling presence in this life

Why'd you try to take me out?
Why try to keep me down?
