Liberate my heart, my mind,
And break these chains, these ropes that bind,
Remove from me all earthly ties,
Release my soul unto the skies,
For i am tethered, stranded here,
Plagued by hate, and guilt, all year,
My spirit tries so hard to speak,
To gain the freedom that i seek.
But i cant leave this world behind,
My soul once more to be confined,
And troubled by these earthly lies,
This world of hypocrites and spies,
To face the fate that i so fear,
To shed more blood as death draws near,
And so i die, my soul so weak,
As one more tear drips down my cheek.
