The Pact - Slaves

I'm gonna let you in on a secret, I'm so afraid
Of letting my skeletons out, so I bottle them in
But I know it's gonna get out in the worst way, so I gave in
I'm gonna be an open book for you to read

The longer I stand up, the longer I don't have to think much
Never have to think about my father and how he walked out on us
How I barely know my mother, for that I'm a shame
Scared what they think of me, so I stay away

Let's make a pact right here, right now
You keep your hopes up that I can change
Well I stay honest, you do the same
I'll keep my purpose, you keep your faith
That we can get through this
These tougher days
These tougher days

I aways felt that you understand
So I fell quietly
My family sees all that I am
And makes me feel like I can stand up

No more weights on my chest now
Bridges burned and chances left now
There's some things that I regret now
Feel the bliss within me

Never have to think about my father and how he walked out on us
How I barely know my mother, for that I'm a shame
Scared what they think of me, so I stay away

Let's make a pact right here, right now
You keep your hopes up that I can change
Well I stay honest, you do the same
I'll keep my purpose, you keep your faith
That we can get through this
These tougher days
These tougher days

Listen, let's make a pact right here, right now
You keep your hopes up that I can change
Well I stay honest, you do the same
I'll keep my purpose, you keep your faith
That we can get through this
These tougher days
