Lyrics Monarch of Rise Against

Monarch

I feel the same
No different than before
There was a time when what you thought of me once mattered
I put weight behind your words
Then something snapped
Deep down inside me
Tectonic shifts aligning
Soft image into focus
Snapped finger break hypnosis
Light through the crack and then
Everything went black

I am not the person you remember from before
The one you patronized and stepped on
The one you hurt
I have pulled the arrows now my skin has become stone
No longer am I prisoner
To your empty fucking words
I carried every single word you said
They stacked up high
They weighed me down
But underneath it all, I didn't notice
I was growing strong somehow

Lean backward through an open window

Nothing left can save me now
I hear the cry of the approaching sirens
Right as I count down
Then something snapped
A lightbulb moment
Like sighting land from the ocean
Pure water in the desert
A thirst that can't be measured
The first breath of a child
Released into the wild

I am not the person you remember from before
The one you patronized and stepped on
The one you hurt
I have pulled the arrows now my skin has become stone
No longer am I prisoner
To your empty fucking words

Your pain is an open secret
It spills with every breath
This game that you played is over now
Gone are the days I was helpless and afraid
Gone are the walls that kept me in

I'm not the person you remember from before

Do you remember?
