  • Your heart is like a fortress
    You keep your feelings locked away
    Is it easier?
    Does it make you feel safe?

    You wander through the darkness
    Of wilderness behind your eyes
    I know you're afraid
    But you gotta move on

    Every fortress falls
    It is not the end
    It ain't if you fall
    But how you rise that says
    Who you really are
    So get up and go through
    If ever your fortress caves
    You're always safe

    I believe I know you
    Yet I don't truly know myself
    I pray you won't feel as alone
    As I have felt

    I don't want to fail you so
    I tell you the awful truth
    Everyone faces darkness on their own
    As I have done, so will you

    Every fortress falls
    It is not the end
    It ain't if you fall
    But how you rise that says
    Who you really are
    So get up and go through
    If ever your fortress caves
    You're always safe in mine

    The Earth spins 'round the sun
    And behind everything happens
    Every night that falls breaks
    To sunrise

    If your fortress is under siege
    You can always run to me
    If your fortress is under siege
    You can always run

    Every fortress falls
    It is not the end
    It ain't if you fall
    But how you rise that says
    Who you really are
    So get up and go through
    If ever your fortress caves
    You're always safe in mine
    If ever your fortress caves
    You're always safe in mine
    If ever your fortress caves
    You're always safe in mine
    Come on through
    Come on through Writer/s: Dean Anthony Fertita, Joshua Michael Homme, Michael Jay Shuman, Troy Dean Van Leeuwen
