Fighting for Breath Lyrics

6. Fighting for Breath (8:16)
I saw the sign a faded stoplight up ahead
I crossed the line cause I was caught in the middle
caught in the middle
long empty road on damaged tyres with shallow
so far to go I might have lost it a little
lost it a little

don’t you stop me now
I’m nowhere near my destination
don’t you shut me down, cause I don’t want to rest

like a maniac I sprinted way off track
then took the long way back
racing at full speed ahead
now I’m taciturn I felt the crash and burn
the point of no return
will I be fighting for breath forever

high empty walls the buzz of tube light never fades
my shadow falls and I’m now lost for a little
lost for a little
try to relax you may experience delays
I know the facts but now I’m caught in the middle
caught in the middle

don’t you lock me out
I’m sure I know the combination
fragments drift about, but suddenly they’re gone

burning up breaking down (don’t want to be)
on the edge all the time (don’t want to be)
flaring up freaking down (don’t want to be)
half awake half alive, just want to be me

breaking up burning down (don’t want to be)
off the edge out of tome (don’t want to be)
falling down flaking out (don’t want to be)
half asleep half alive, just want to be free

I close my eyes and turn out the lights
cause somebody closed this road
and I can’t drive cause now there’s nowhere to go
I close my mind, and mine is the night
mine is the longest wait
and here I’ll stay ‘til the stoplight eventually fades

don’t you keep me down
I’m nowhere near my destination
don’t you stop me now, cause I don’t want to rest
