These Chains Lyrics

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
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 realised
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
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

I heard Steve Hogarth on Portugesse tv station saying: "what the song is really saying is that quite often we all feel that we are tied down like we are trapped in a box of cage, but the point that the song is making is that these chains are all in our minds and we're all free and this cage that we think we are trapped in, we can walk out of it any time we choose".

Steve Hogarth here uses the theme of a man whose like is fucked up.. his wife left him.. no money.. no friends. Then, this guy realize the whole point of the song.. these chains are all in our minds.

Though i dont like all these poppy songs but the lyrics is nice especially the last lines.. "Born free... but afraid to be".. AMAZING !!!!
