THE RATTLE OF CHAINS 
 
 
I HEAR THE NOISE FROM FAR AWAY 
BUT I KNOW IT'S JUST THE CHAINS, 
THAT RATTLE ALL THROUGH THIS PLACE 
REMINDING ME OF THE CONSTANT ACHE, 
 
IT LINGERS ON THE EDGE OF SANITY 
YEAH MY HEART FEELS SO EMPTY, 
I ASK SO MANY QUESTIONS 
AND RECEIVE NOTHING IN RETURN,,, 
 
GUESS IT'S PLAIN TO SEE 
THAT THERES A REASON I SIT HERE, 
LOCKED WITHIN LIKE A ANIMAL 
LOOKING OUT AT YOU, 
 
WALKING THE RANGE LIKE THE PATH THEY TAKE 
THROUGH THE CITY ZOO ON A STROLL, 
YEAH YOU STOP AT TIMES TO STARE 
BUT THEN YOU REALIZE I'M JUST A NIGHTMARE , 
 
ONE YOU'VE SEEN SO MANY TIMES 
AS YOU WALK ALONG SHAKING YOUR CHAINS, 
AND ASKING THINGS YOU KNOW THERES NO ANSWER TOO 
FROM THOSE ON THE INSIDE OF THIS PAIN,, 
 
IT SHOW'S ON THE FACE YOU SEE 
JUST TAKE ALOOK AT ME, 
I KNOW IT VERY WELL 
BUT WHO AM I TO TELL, 
 
REMAINING STRONG INSIDE 
BUT FALLING APART ON THE OUT, 
BUT YOU SAY THERES STILL SOME HOPE 
JUST GOT TO TAKE THE CHANCE AND FIND, 
 
THAT LITTLE OPENING THAT I NEED 
TO CHANGE AND BECOME FREE, 
BUT WHO ARE YOU TO SAY 
THAT IT'LL BE DIFFERENT ONE DAY,,
