You´re the prisoner locked in your cell
You´re living in your personal hell
Invisible bars block your view
They don´t exist except for you

Free, why can´t you see how easily
You could break those bars right down
New freedom found, travel around
And find out exactly why
Give it a try, living the lie
And try to solve the final clue
See if it´s true, found out just who
The real enemy is you

Don´t be afraid
Don´t be deceived
A new world for you
Can be conceived

Don´t tell me ´bout how the world isn´t fair
How you´ll live your life how you choose
I don´t want to hear another excuse
How it ain´t your fault when you lose

And you´re the prisoner
Your mind´s diseased, my mind is cured

I was the prisoner but never again
My worst enemy is now my friend
Brainwashed, you´ll probably believe
I gave it up for a new reprieve

Free, why can´t you see how easily
You could break those bars right down
New freedom found, travel around
And find out exactly why
Give it a try, living the lie
And try to solve the final clue
See if it´s true, found out just who
The real enemy is you

You say you´re political
I say, "Screw that, you´re just a fool."
