I promised to keep you safe, yet, you doubt me saying,
"Promises are for the deaf and for thsoe who are blind"

They held me down to burry my head
Oh,oh, I won't cry, I will not weep
They held me down as you broke me
oh,I won't cry but these are lies
They can try to break me!

But now I know you're filled with greed and lust
And i knew, our love wouldn't last
not like the deteriorating walls of our minds or the ignited flames of our arms

They hold me down,oh,I won't give up
They hold me down,oh, I won't cry
They hold me down,oh, but i know
They can't break me!
