Lyrics

Chairs thrown and tables toppled
Hands armed with broken bottles
Standing no chance to win but
We're not running, we're not running

There's a point I think we're missing
It's in the air we raise our fists in
In the smiles we cast each other
My sister, my brother

About the time we gave up hoping
We never find these locks still open
Stumbling on stones unturned
The hurt we feel, we all have earned

The lines we cross in search of change
But all they see is treason

Although we have no obligation
To stay alive
On broken backs we beg for mercy
We will survive

Break out, I won't be left here
Behind closed doors

Bonfires burn like beacons
Guiding the lost and weakened
Flames dance on crashing waves
Guiding ships who've gone astray

Time out, let's stop to think this through
We've all got better things to do
Than talk in circles, run in place
Answers are inches from our face

Although we have no obligation
To stay alive
On broken backs we beg for mercy
We will survive
Break out! I won't be left here
Behind closed doors

Black eye, broken fingers
Blood drips and I let it run
Down my lips into my swollen gums
When hope is nonexistent
Our instincts all scream "Run!"
We never turn our backs or even bite our tongues

Although we have no obligation
To stay alive
On broken backs we beg for mercy
We will survive

Break out, I won't be left here
Behind closed doors
(Behind closed doors)

Although we have no obligation
To stay alive
On broken backs we beg for mercy
We will survive
Break out, I won't be left here
Behind closed doors
