  • It ain't no mystery
    I'm all I have left
    I'm pushing back running you over

    I've been thrown down,
    Run around
    Beaten 'til I hit the ground
    I'm telling you right now that it's over

    There's no room for mistakes
    All the parts are in place
    Say what you will but say it to my face

    Better back the fuck up
    Better shut the fuck up
    I'll do what I want
    And I'll never give up

    I won't be broken
    I won't be tortured
    I won't be beaten down

    I have the answer
    I can take the pressure
    I will turn it all around

    Lift me up above this
    The flames and the ashes
    Lift me up and help me to fly away

    Lift me up above this
    The broken, the empty
    Lift me up and help me to fly away

    I'm gonna change history
    Enlighten the world
    Teach 'em how to see through my eyes
    I'm gonna lash back check that fate as a heart attack
    Stomp out all the ugliest lies

    You can't convince me to change
    We ain't on the same page
    I've had my fill
    There's nothing but rage

    Best get out of my way 'cause there's nothing to say
    Is that all you got because I ain't got all day

    I won't be broken
    I won't be tortured
    I won't be beaten down

    I have the answer
    I can take the pressure
    I will turn it all around

    Lift me up above this
    The flames and the ashes
    Lift me up and help me to fly away

    Lift me up above this
    The broken, the empty
    Lift me up and help me to fly away

    I won't be broken
    I won't be tortured
    I won't be beaten down

    I have the answer
    I can take the pressure
    I will turn it all around

    Lift me up above this
    The flames and the ashes
    Lift me up and help me to fly away

    Lift me up above this
    The broken, the empty
    Lift me up and help me to fly away

    Lift me up to fly away
    Lift me up to fly away
    Lift me up Writer/s: IVAN MOODY, JEREMY SPENCER, KEVIN CHURKO, THOMAS JASON GRINSTEAD, ZOLTAN BATHORY
