Everything crashed
His wife left him
He lost all of his money
And most of his friends
He lay awake all night
Lonely and desperate
Contemplating
Starting again

(these chains are all your own
These chains are comfortable)

4.00 in the morning
Sat in the kitchen
Keys on the table
Went out for a drive
He didn't know
Where he was going
Didn't know
If he was alive

The dawn was breakin
A new day was rising
Shadows creepin over the fields
Over the fields
He watched the pink light
Steal across the horizon
He realised
He saw with new eyes

These chains are all your own
These chains are comfortable
This cage was never locked
Born free but scared to be

These chains are all your own
These chains are comfortable
These chains were never locked
Born free but scared to be

This cage was made for you
With care and constant attention
This cage is safe and warm
Will you die and never know what it's like to be/live
Outside.
