lyrics

This whole life keeps on rising like a flame before my eyes.
Every move I make drives a nail deeper into this wooden box.
I found out on my own there ain't nothing in this world that's comin' free
The path I've had to walk takes a toll and it's taken every part of me.

These two hands don't need no law
They just need something big enough to hold
These old bones don't tell no lies
They've been broken for freedom and now it's time to rise.

Thirty years is all it takes to kill the heart of man
Thirty more and he goes back to the dust where he began
Well I'm somewhere in between but I refuse to live like I'm already dead
I don't need no chains so take that heavy yoke of guilt off my back

Cause I know
These two hands don't need no law
They just need something big enough to hold
These old bones don't tell no lies
They've been broken for freedom and now it's time to rise.
