lyrics

When your mind says give up

Hope whispers one more time

When you're drowned by bad luck

Just swim to the other side

It will hold you down
 spin your world around

It will pin you to the floor and
 throw you against these walls

And I'm a slave to it all



Just a puppet pulling back on my strings I wanna be free

Grab them like they're reigns and ride into the Galaxy

You won't keep me down I'll fight against the gravity

Pushing back against the weight that's on top of me


No one said it would be easy and
 I knew it from the start

I won't be defeated or beaten 
I've been broken bruised and scarred

It won't always be on your side
 but it will always light the way

If you can find it through the darkness amongst all the mess

You'll be heading for better days

And I'm a slave to it all




No matter what happens to me I'm gonna be fine

Take control of my life I'm gonna make it mine

Step back have a look tell me what you can see

Pushing back against the weight that's on top of me 




You can't hold me down!

For the first time in my life I can see what's right in front of me 

To blue skies from dark nights and fist fights with myself
I lost sight 

And I'm a slave to it all
