Citizen Soldier – Empty Cup Lyrics

Empty Cup Lyrics – Citizen Soldier

You’ve kept me in a place I don’t belong
Your walls are caving in on me
Your skeletons inside pacing these halls
They’re always waiting there for me

You hang me up like art on the wall
You criticize until I break and I fall

Stained, blood and bruises on my name
It’s raining in this empty cup, filling up but only halfway
’cause I know that I’m not the way you want me
Can you hear me now? (Wo-oh-oh-oh)
Spilling out
When I say: „Enough is enough, this glass is breaking“
Let it fall, cut me up, I’ll still be standing

I sit alone, your judgment sinking in
Always on trial in my head
Like I am less than human for feeling this
You’ll try to fix me till I’m dead

You hang me up like art on the wall
This time won’t give in, I’m not listening

Stained, blood and bruises on my name
It’s raining in this empty cup, filling up but only halfway
’cause I know that I’m not the way you want me
Can you hear me now? (Wo-oh-oh-oh)
Spilling out
When I say: „Enough is enough, this glass is breaking“
Let it fall, cut me up, I’ll still be standing

You hang me up like art on the wall
You hang me up, you hang me up
You hang me, hang me, hang me

Stained, blood and bruises on my name
It’s raining in this empty cup, filling up but only halfway
’cause I know that I’m not the way you want me
Can you hear me now? (Wo-oh-oh-oh)
Spilling out
When I say: „Enough is enough, this glass is breaking“
Let it fall, cut me up, I’ll still be standing

Can you hear me now?
Enough is enough is enough
Enough is enough, this glass is breakin
Can you hear me now?
