Lyrics

Isn't it funny how the pain never seems to go away
It's there everyday
And how could I allow my own flesh and blood to be so enslaved
So afraid

Hold on, Relief keeps calling but I can't reply
Hold on, So I keep drinking I'm soulsearching blind
Hold on, Relief keeps calling but I can't reply
Hold on, These guilt-filled fingers are barely holding on

Imprisoned by my alibis My motive rest behind the strengths I wear
When noone's there
And who am I to fight the only thing in my life that's still there
It's so unfair

Hold on, Relief keeps calling but I can't reply
Hold on, So I keep drinking I'm soulsearching blind
Hold on, Relief keeps calling but I can't reply
Hold on, These guilt-filled fingers are barely holding on

Now I can scream all of the things, the things I couldn't say
Yes I can scream all of the things I could never say

Hold on, Relief keeps calling but I can't reply
Hold on, So I keep drinking I'm soulsearching blind
Hold on, Relief keeps calling but I can't reply
Hold on, These guilt-filled fingers are barely holding on
