lyrics

DON’T LET THEM CUT YOU

Back up another step
Feel the wall against your neck
Shield your eyes from the glare
You can’t hide anywhere

There’s a cage around you now
From the sky down to the ground
You can cry you can squeal
Smash the concrete shake the steel

Don’t let them cut you
I can pull you through
But I can’t be brave for you
When they cut you
Oh, I feel it too

All the demons from your head
Crawl the ground, crawl your bed
Made you cut your guitar strings
Now they’ve come for everything

CHORUS

I can say keep everything
But yours aren’t the shoes I’m walking in
I’ve learned one thing through the years
Don’t blame a man for his fears

CHORUS
