"(Take These) Chains" as written by and Robert Sidney Jr. Halligan....
Up into an endless state of time
With nothing good or bad just one
We have been strangers for a very long time
We have watched and we have tried
And now I need this
Know this taste this want this...
So swell the black sails with wind
And let me reap my rewards and start again
This is the line that will fall
Now that there's nothing left
That can shut you down
It doesn't take much to break
A life beyond the things you live for
Into a place where you have all that it takes
We have watched and we have tried
And now I need this
Know this taste this want this...
So swell the black sails with wind
And let me reap my rewards and start again
Swell the black sails with wind
And let me reap my rewards and start again
This is the line that will fall
Now that there's nothing left
That can shut you down
You will reap just what you sow
You will reap just what you sow
You will reap just what you sow
You will reap just what you sow
So swell the black sails with wind
And let me reap my rewards and start again
So swell the black sails with wind
And let me reap my rewards and start again
And let me reap my rewards and start again
Let me reap my rewards and start again
Let me reap my rewards and start again
Let me reap my rewards and start again

    General CommentHere are the Lyrics :

    I move away it don't do me no good
    Three thousand miles don't help like I thought it would.
    Help me, I'm beggin' you please.
    You've got the power down on my knees
    Give me some kind of life.
    Leave me be.
    Take these chains off
    Take 'em off of my heart

    Reach out to me, as if from the grave
    I tried to run but I'm tied to you like a slave.
    It's my fault for loving you so
    You were so precious, how could I know.
    You turned mean overnight
    Poor poor me.

    I don't owe you anything
    Why don't you get out of my life.
    Through it all the memories cling
    And I can't sleep at night.

    General CommentThe lyrics also could be about an addictive substance.
    Listen carefully.

    General CommentGood metal cheese. Song about how hard relationships can be..only problem is I'm sure Mr. Halford is squealing over the vision of a jacked Mediterranean pool boy.
