There are so many things I want to knowThere are so many places I want to goBut a woman came one day and told me "No,you don't know""What's the feeling of being caged without walls" "What it means to have a life that you don't want"
There are so many people who believethat there is some other land where you can liveBut I walked a thousand miles, and I never found a placewhere a soul can rise and stare at me in the eyesand where men do not believe in their own lies
And then I ran to the river, I ran thru the heatI ran like the devil was loose on his feetI tried to forget that there is no rulethat says that your life can't be empty and cruel
She stood right on the bank when I got thereLost and small and looking everywhereAnd I said "I grieves me so much that I can_not help""For your reason is what is leaving you confined""And there is no other prison than your mind"
She looked at me and said "I've got to go""The thunder comes and soon it shall be cold"But remember about me one day when you'll be oldNever let your life become an empty holeAnd your spirit be trapped into a role"
And now I walk in the city, I walk back in lineAnd I long for someone or some things to be mineThe echo of a voice rings out in my earIt whispers it’s not hard to be living in fear
