Chains


An hour since the sundown, the ghosts are creeping in
A-gathering around me like starlings in the wind
Dark shapes a-gather round

Voices like my brothers are whispering to me
But I don't know these others who want to set me free
Come home you're out of time

But the life it can't let go
It's a chain cuts across my soul
Anchoring in this world... I

Put my hand into the flame
Burning but I feel no pain
Don't speak, don't speak my name
Hold on to this life of chains

The door is standing open but I'm too tired to be afraid
My whole life's in this moment, I've been fighting all the way
Just need a li'l more time

'Coz the life just can't let go
It's a chain cuts across my soul
Anchoring in this world... I

Put my hand into the flame
Burning but I feel no pain
Don't speak, don't speak my name
Hold on to this life of chains

Na-na na-na-na

Put my hand into the flame
Burning but I feel no pain
Don't speak, don't speak my name
Hold on to this life of chains
