11. Soft Skeletons

New Surrender
by Anberlin



 

Dear little girl, (there’s) so much hurt
For such a young age.
Trapped inside a pretty little lie,
Your body’s betrayed.

Don’t fix your eyes on a fix you’ll rely on.
Fixed her eyes on a fix she relies upon.

Stand unafraid,
All the good souls, stand unafraid.

When the light starts to burn, and the pain returns,
I just wish that I could heal the hurt you feel tonight.
There’s life in your veins.
These needles are chains to hold you down
How can you expect to win this war?
You’re too afraid to fight
Are you too afraid to fight?

Dear little one, that was so much pain.
Time you can’t replace.
Trapped inside, too afraid to cry, and now
Hands and bruises cover face.

Don’t fix your eyes on a fix you’ll rely on.
Fixed her eyes on a fix.

When the light starts to burn, and the pain returns,
I just wish that I could heal the hurt you feel tonight.
There’s life in your veins.
These needles are chains to hold you down.
How can you expect to win this war
If you’re too afraid to fight?

Stand unafraid,
All the good souls. (All the good souls)
Stand unafraid,
All of the good souls,
Stand unafraid.

When the light starts to burn, and the pain returns,
I just wish that I could heal the hurt you feel tonight.
There’s life in your veins.
These needles are chains to hold you down.
How can you expect to win this war…
When the light starts to burn, and the pain returns,
I just wish that I could heal the hurt you feel tonight.
There’s life in your veins.
These needles are chains to hold you down.
How can you expect to win this war
If you’re too afraid to fight?

Behind the Song:
'This song was written about a news paper article I read (I did a *graphic* modesty guild post about it here http://modesty.blogspot.com/2006/12/james-chavez-must-die.html). There are hurting people in this beautiful world, I wish I could rescue them all. I got the title of the song from Emily Haines side project ‘Soft Skeletons’' - Stephen Christian
