  • You built this world around you, your universe
    In spite of best intentions, things could not be worse
    Chaos and fear left you hangin' by a thread
    As you argue with the voice inside your head

    Untethered angel
    Falling into darkness
    Don't be afraid of letting go
    Givin' up yourself won't set you free

    Misgivings and dismay, nightmares of wasted days
    Can't live your life this way, something needs to change
    Healthy, accepting thoughts, intent on driving us
    Avoidance at all costs, a painful thing to watch

    Fear can't live inside you
    Push you to the edge
    Face the fear within you
    Wake up from the dead

    Untethered angel
    Falling into darkness
    Don't be afraid of letting go
    Givin' up yourself won't set you free
    Set you free

    Untethered angel
    Falling into darkness
    Don't be afraid of letting go
    Open your heart, be set free Writer/s: John Petrucci
