A THOUSAND YEARS

i been here for a thousand years
i'll be here for a thousand more
i can't sleep
i can barely breathe
but there's a road you say is in front of me
but nothing's gonna change
blood on my chains
guns and blades
but there's a road
there's a road i can take
something's got to change

i been on my mind
i been on my knees
set the world on fire
set the fire on me

there's a knock on my door
same shots i heard before
she says stand on top of my shoulders
i will show you to the shore
it's the only way i know
through the fog
through the late night pain
just a tick tock
the time has got to stop
it's a thousand years gone in a day

i got off my mind
i got on my feet
set the world on fire
set the fire on me
we got all the time
we got all we need
set the world on fire
set the fire on me

in a thousand years
