Let's blast the cannons, we're stuck behind this wall,
Let's have this come crashin', let's watch it all fall.
You feel as though you cannot breathe,
You feel as though you will never be free.
Pack your bags, and get ready to leave.

Flying above the ground, and you feel yourself coming down,
You long to turn around, but you're on top and wearing your crown.
We will destroy this kingdom, you've come to create,
We will escape this, step into the light, and out of the shade.

Let's raise our glass to this, it's our chance to start anew,
Forget that silver kiss, we aren't giving in so soon.
This dark haven of life, will go as soon as you release that tattered lace.
As long as you try, I promise we will be safe.

Flying above the ground, and you feel yourself coming down,
You long to turn around, but you're on top and wearing your crown.
We will destroy this kingdom, you've come to create,
We will escape this, step into the light, and out of the shade.

Ashes fall from the sky, the blood is dripping from your eyes,
Can you even remember the last time you truly cried?
Ink is bleeding from the pigments of your skin,
Blackness retreating to where all of this was thought to begin.
We are leaving here tonight, this dark and evil place,
Time is to start, we're living life, erase the blankess off your face.

Flying above the ground, and you feel yourself coming down,
You long to turn around, but you're on top and wearing your crown.
We will destroy this kingdom, you've come to create,
We will escape this, step into the light, and out of the shade.

Take your eyes off your arms, that read those beautiful scars,
They will bare no more harm, they will heal beneath these stars.

The author's comments:
What inspired this song is a personal struggle I'm going through with my depression. Sometimes I feel like I'm behind a wall and other times I feel like I'm not even apart of this world, like I am fading from it all, flying above it all. It's basically about being trapped in your mind and having a hard time breaking out of it.
