Lyrics
You must be cautious. You must always be burning. You must tread lightly from the powers that be. You must see the sunrise will a feeling of wonder - never forgetting what it means to be "FREE"

And you must have courage. You must be curious. You must try absorbing all the things that you see. You search for a lifetime for the meaning of one word - if you were to pick one word - that word should be "FREE"

There is talk of compassion but it hides from the heart. And it runs like a quarry from a senseless kill.

You must find meaning in things you've been ignoring. And you will learn lessons - help the soul to be "FREE"

There is talk of compassion but it hides from the heart. And it runs like a quarry from a senseless kill.

You will find lessons for the teaching and the learning. And you will walk prouder - 'cause you will be "FREE" Your eyes will be brighter - 'cause you will be "FREE"

You search for a lifetime for the meaning of one word. If you were to pick one word - that word should be "FREE"
