lyrics

Take these chains from off my neck
that keep me from being free
throw em down into a hole or
throw em out into the sea

Take these chains from off my neck
melt em down into something good
something shiny set down in the middle
of the neighborhood

And people driving by will stop and wonder what it is
and I'll say it is a monument to you and what you did
Take these chains

Take these chains from off my neck
that keep me so far from you
take my mind and body back
and make em something you can use

Let me be a piece of light
or just a particle of air
let me be a cup of something cool
for somebody somewhere

I'm not old
I'm not young
I been down
but I'm not done
I believe, I don't know why
Only you can make me shine

I remember when I was young
and I felt you in my sweat
I never knew despair
and I lived without regret

Now I'm driving down the road and I got mean things on my mind
and I want to get them done, I got bucketfulls of time
I want to get so gone that i cannot feel a thing
and I want to get so close to someone who wants the same thing

I am skin
I am bones
I am lovely
I'm alone

Take these chains
from off of me
Only you can make me free
