They're bound so tight,
it's getting so hard to breathe.
Holding me down,
never experiencing or seeing life
for what it really is.
Chains so thick and tight,
there's no way to break through-
making my life such a hell,
almost impossible to make it to tomorrow.
They've done nothing other than
teach me to hold back.
Embracing me in their steel arms,
never will they let me go,
until I find the key to the lock
holding these chains together.
No amount of love or hate
can ever break these chains,
only inner strength
will make them give way.
