"I'm Free" as written by and Pete Townshend....
I'm free
I'm free
And freedom tastes of reality
I'm free
I'm free
An' I'm waiting for you to follow me

If I told you what it takes
To reach the highest high
You'd laugh and say 'nothing's that simple'
But you've been told many times before
Messiahs pointed to the door
And no one had the guts to leave the temple!

I'm free
I'm free
And freedom tastes of reality

I'm free
I'm free
An' I'm waiting for you to follow me

How can we follow?
How can we follow?

    General CommentUnless it has a deeper meaning, it's basically Tommy getting excited that his is free from his self-induced "curse" and decides to show everyone how to find the way to what he thinks is true happiness. Then bad stuff happens.

    General CommentIt about a revolt against society, how people are afaraid to listen to ideas that may challange their morality despite being more ethical. Tommy has discovered that life outside of societal control is free and real. Its reaching that point and sticking by that opinion that will always challange a person.
