I’m in these chains

 

I look out from these gates

Ashamed of what I’ve been made

These chains on my feet

Causin’ me to bleed

Well, I was born here

Through the cracks in these walls I peer

I want to be free, I want to be free!

 

I am a slave

In bondage I lay

I’m in these chains

This is my fate

 

The warden came

Gave me the key to these chains

Now free from the brace I make my escape

There, a master was waiting

The land of the free enslaved me

I want to be free, I want to be free!

 

I am a slave

In bondage I lay

I’m in these chains

This is my fate

 

There’s a statue in the east

Lady Liberty

Her torch was bright, now tarnished and green

How can I be free, from the chains, and my fate, and these gates, oh I yearn to get paid but for now I’m a slave…

 

I am a slave

In bondage I lay

I’m in these chains

This is my fate
