The Airborne Toxic Event – Chains Lyrics

Midnight
I stare out the window from my room
I hear the dogs it’s going to be dawn soon
I wonder where you are

In my mind’s eye
I’m floating alone in the night sky
The treetops, the buildings beneath me
I feel my heart beating

So I try to find anything
To kill the time
To quiet my mind

(Chorus)
There’s got to be something
There’s got to be someone

Else still awake in this city
I can’t take another night
I can’t stay
I’ve got to break and break and break
These chains away, away

Bars closed
We stumble around through the echoes
Hiding our past in some old clothes
Like its some dirty secret

And I see a face
In the passing light
It’s so good tonight
I’m tired of putting up this fight

(Chorus)
There’s got to be somewhere
There’s got to be someone

Else still alive in this city
I can’t hide another night
I can’t stay
I’ve got to break and break and break
These chains away, away
These chains away, away

We lean into the wind
Riding our nerves and choking engines
Built for a time not 50 years old
I can hear the whispering at the door
When I’m alone in this cell
With 10,000 words and nowhere to go
And I wish you could know
How much I still need you

The spell of this town, the graves on the hill
Lit up like a crown
The names on the signs
I can’t even say
Have to break and break and break
These chains away, away
These chains away, away
These chains away, away
(Awayyyyy)

Sometimes I feel the pain
At the heart of this ember
All these ashes I choke on
Does anyone remember
Where we came from, where we came to
A place with no center and no edge
And no end

[The Airborne Toxic Event – Chains Lyrics]
