about

I originally recorded this song on 4-track cassette and put it together with a handful of other songs for an unofficial release called "Incidental Faith". Admittedly I was more youthful and naive then, but this song is still cathartic for me.

lyrics

I've signed my life away on your dotted lines
You've made me a prisoner, though I can't recall my crimes
And I know if things stay this way
I'll remain locked up in these chains
I'll never see the light of day
Well I've got one demand to make

Set me free


It's not your endorsement that carries all the weight
It's my breaking back beneath the pressure you create
Now I grow old before my time
Boxed in by a white chalk line
While you pretend that you are blind
To the pain I cannot hide

Set me free


I never heard you latch the lock and throw the key away
You took advantage of my youth and my naiveté
I've closed my dusty book of dreams, forgotten yesterday
Now it's all academic
