"Simple Boy" as written by Mark Hosking, Andrew Goddard, Stephen Judd, Jonathan Stockman and Ian / Kenny....
I'm high above the world
Why should I feel pain
Or feel alone
To be protected like a simple boy
If I choose to let you down
Begin to know

You're free to go
You're free to go

I will fight until there's nothing left
Cross the world together from this sinking ship
Or drown alone
Off the coast
Facing nothingness
Drawn to feel the emptiness
Oh help me now
Describe the scene

You're free to go
(We'll face these things some other day)
You're free to go
(I won't leave you you're not ok)
You're free to go
(We'll face these things some other day)
You're free to go
(I won't leave you you're not ok)

Simple boy, stay here
Simple boy, don't wander
Simple boy, you're safe here
Simple boy, simple boy

So when did we lose the plot
Were running against the clock
Don't hesitate
Or you will never know

Simple boy, you're free to go
Don't wander, you're free to go
Simple boy, you're free to go
You're safe here, you're free to go
You're free to go
You're free to go
My simple boy, my simple boy
My simple boy, my simple boy

    Song MeaningSimple Boy, after realizing that he is on the path to nothingness and ruin, on a "sinking ship", is given the choice to fight or drown on his path.

    Accidentally, it seems, Simple Boy learns that his path, his servitude, his prison, is all a choice he didn't realize he made. Any time he wants to leave, he's "Free to go".

    His captors, however, encourage him to stay here, to not wander, because he's "safe".

    The rest of the album, after this song, is Simple Boy's journey out of his self-made prison.

    General CommentAre they absolutely right? Some lines sound different to my ears? For example I hear "On the course facing nothingness"
