So she's depressed
And I am losing my mind
It's so difficult now
Yes, everything has changed
As we struggle against some impossible current
How can we make things light again?
How can we win?

Is happiness even possible?
Don't say you don't believe anymore
Don't say that you are lost to me now
It's a free fucking world, you can go where you want
How can we make things light again?
How can we win?
How can we make things light again?
How can we win?

It's a mad free fucking world
You can do what, go where you want
Leave me, don't leave me alone
Leave me, don't leave me alone
It's a free fucking world, you can go where you want

    General CommentSo powerful.
    Icons, Abstract Thee may be one of my favorite albums of all time.
    Each song is just bursting with different levels of emotion.
    This one resonates with uncontrolled, bitter resentment. So many different facets of Kevin! I can't even put it into words.

    General CommentI cannot listen to this song without becomming depressed. It remindes me of a realtionship that has no hope.

    "As we struggle against some impossible current" "Is happiness even possible?"

    And when you think about how kevin must hav felt, going through his divorce, his problems with accepting he has a child, his whole breakdown, you really can see why he feels like there is no hope. He probably thinks his depression is such a burden on him and his family that he is telling his wife, you can leave me whenever you want.

    "Don't say that you are lost to me now
    It's a free fucking world, you can go where you want"

    And this song pefectly sets the mood for the next song, Miss Blonde, Your Papa Is Failing, on the Icons, Abstract Thee ep.
