You were captain of the ship
It was headed for rocks
But you were first in the lifeboat somehow
Now you're watching from shore
As the passengers wave from the bow


Free of it all
Now you'll just float away
Blowin' like leaves on the wind
The rules of the game can be changed
By the one who wins


Chorus:
Now you're free of it all
So free of it all
Now you're free of it all
So free of it all
And I know that you'd say
That you'd always planned it this way



The cargo was lost
But you never give in
Your heart is still locked in a vault
You're free of it all
When it's somebody else's fault


To finish this spin
With the twist of a hand
To know that you've hidden a crime
One goes on ahead while another is left behind


Chorus:
And you're free of it all
So free of it all
Now you're free of it all
So free of it all
And you knew I would say
You'd always planned it this way



I always knew
You would walk out one day
And it never crossed my mind
To throw in just one more dime
And get this close to the line


Now that it's done
And my locks've been changed
And the keys are all back in the drawer
You're not a prisoner
I'm not a guard anymore


Chorus:
And you're free of it all
So free of it all
Now you're free of it all
So free of it all
And you're free of it all
So free of it all
Now you're free of it all
So free of it all
And I know you would say
That you'd always planned it this way
