My mind has made me prisoner
Of time, love, hate, career.
In bondage have I lived my life,
The jailer is my fear.
Of all my thoughts the bars are made,
So strong and oh, so high.
They promised me that “This is Life”
And left me here to die,
And die I must but ‘fore I do
A prison break I’ll try.
What, after all, have I to lose,
So loud and clear I’ll cry
I’m breaking out of this here jail,
So stop me if you can.
Step aside time, hate and fear,
I’m Out! I’m a Free Man!
