  • I want free
    I want change
    I want it written on my grave
    And no the stone's not gonna read "liar that died living in his cage"

    I'm sick of being angry at all the wrong things
    Keeping my head down to get through another day
    How much time have I spent yelling at people that don't exist?
    I'm sick of being hopeless at all the wrong times
    Living a let down, living a lie
    I can't be wrong, not this time

    I just wanna
    (Live free) They won't get the best of me
    (Live free) I don't need your sympathy
    You may spark the flame
    But these scars will not remain
    You'll never burn me out

    It's really getting hard writing negative songs
    Beating myself up to get another word out
    How much time have I lost, yelling about all the pain I've felt?
    There's gotta be an answer, gotta be a fact?
    Find the pieces, take the risk
    I won't go down, not like this

    I just wanna
    (Live free) They won't get the best of me
    (Live free) I don't need your sympathy
    You may spark the flame
    But these scars will not remain
    You'll never burn me out

    You'll never burn me out

    (Live free) They won't get the best of me
    (Live free) I don't need your sympathy

    (Live free) They won't get the best of me
    (Live free) I don't need your sympathy
    You may spark the flame
    But these scars will not remain
    You'll never burn me out

    You'll never burn me Writer/s: CALEB SHOMO, JOHN WILLIAM FELDMANN
