There's bars, bars on my windows There's chains, chains on my doors There's bars that spill onto streets And chains that lead me there by the feet Bars and chains Bars and chains And other people's games. I'm chained to my emotions I'm barred from my own head Chains to prove my devotion Bars to keep away the dead Bars and chains Bars and chains And tears in the rain. I'm boxed into a corner, wishing I were gone Parallel bars to swing from Chains that whisper You'll miss me when I'm gone Bars and chains Bars and chains And people's games Daisy chain over reaction Exploding bar room brawl Ill give you an ovation For withstanding it all Through bars and chains Bars and chains And a life untamed. There's a light in my attic There's a black hole eating my soul Bars when I get too frantic Chains to keep my whole Bars and chains And shame upon shame. These chain cannot restrain me These bars can't keep me in These shackles they don't own me Death brings freedom Within Bars and chains Bars and chains. Bars and chains.
