lyrics

Bottles of toxins and fatal fumes
shattered the Annie I knew
Pieces of her soul were exchanged
for a puppet on a string
Paying with secrets and spare change
Now, no one can recognize
this clever student by day,
this thief by night

Her life, she's long forgot
She’ll get high at any cost,
With each battle she has lost
She drinks till the feeling's gone

But maybe it's not to late
to rewrite her tragic fate
for now, she lacks the strength to wait
for the dawn of a new day
the dawn of a new day
the dawn of a new day

Annie stood inches from her grave
mortality forced her to change
she promised to resist; to delay
it's easier to say than do

Her body is shaking
Her confidence breaking
this promise is easy to break
one shot and she would lose

But maybe its not too late
to move on from yesterday
She'll find the strength to change
She wants to live to see
the dawn of new day
the dawn of a new day
the dawn of a new day

Almost died, but survived
Found false cures for pain
I can't lie, oh Annie and I?
We are one and the same

I want to live to say ...
I fought the war and won
Each mountain overcome
pieced back what came undone
to feel the warmth of the sun
of the dawn of a new day
the dawn of new day
the dawn of new day

I fought the war and won
