Lonely are the free
'Cause there ain't that many of them
They don't walk like you and me
They just tumble in the breeze
Lighter than a feather
All together, separately
That's how it's s'posed to be
No matter where they wander
From post to in between,
From here to over yonder,
There's no place for them to land
Lonely are the free
The silent are the strong
Not so much as a whisper
Tells you anything is wrong
You've known all along,
But you can't help but listen
And now the moment's gone.
It keeps you hanging on
Until the stillness signaling
The breaking of the dawn,
Is shattered by the sirens
Singing sacrificial songs
The silent are the strong.
That's all they used to see
A violent shadow passing 'cross
The sun so fleetingly
That if you have to ask you miss it
Anyway you see
Lonely are the free
Lonely are the free
