Everything crashed, his wife left him
He lost all his money and most of his friends
He lay awake all night, lonely and desperate
Contemplating, starting again

These chains are all your own
These chains are comfortable

Four in the morning, sat in the kitchen
Keys on the table, went out for a drive
He didn't know where he was going
He didn't know if he was alive

The dawn was breaking, a new day was rising
Shadows creepin' over the fields
He watched the pink light steal across the horizon
He realized, he saw with new eyes

These chains are all your own
These chains are comfortable
This cage was never locked
Born free but scared to be

These chains are all your own
These chains are comfortable
These chains were never locked
Born free but scared to be

This cage was made for you
With care and constant attention
This cage is safe and warm, will you die
And never know what it's like outside?

Outside, outside, these chains, these chains
