Lyrics: I open my eyes but I still manage to dream
This cold bathroom floor now just feels like home to me
I stumble to the mirror and I naturally start to clean
but my body's scorned with marks that say these aren't the last lines that I'll see

So please cut this string attached to my wrists
buried in my shaking palm I hold this evil in my fist
I relive my pain with every scar
It's a battlefield of memories that just won't go away for me

This world has tied me down and the knot keeps tightening
cause I'm just a puppet dangling from this breaking string
But maybe I'll turn this blade the other way
and roll up my sleeves to let the scars show my mistakes

So please cut this string attached to my wrists
buried in my shaking palm I hold this evil in my fist
I relive my pain with every scar
It's a battlefield of memories that just won't go away for me

You couldn't make the cut, so now you'll make this cut

I can't breath, I'm in need
where's my crimson savior?
No I won't go back just to bleed
forgive me, I promise I'll stay clean
About the Artist
Jamestown Story Jamestown Story

These days, you don't find many independent artists capable of making a living off their music; Dane Schmidt however, has done so successfully for the last seven years, without the help of a record label. When you dig deeper into the Jamestown Story, it becomes very apparent why.

The Jamestown Story began in 2003 and since that time has independently sold over 250k songs on iTunes, 25k albums, toured 35 US states, played 350+ shows including tours in Canada & Japan, and has had over 75 TV placements on shows such as Dr. Phil, Jersey Shore, Snooki & JWoww, The Challenge Rivals 2, Teen Mom 2, One Tree Hill, The Real World, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

With an undeniable work ethic and the ability to adjust and change to the always shifting music industry, you can be confident that the Jamestown Story will be continuing to add more chapters to its tale for awhile.
