I met a man locked away
For things he hadn't done
Innocence on a ball and chain
He'll never feel the sun

Again on his face
Or roses in his hands
But when he smiled at me
I could understand

If you're free you'll never see the walls
If your head is clear you'll never free-fall
If you're right you'll never fear the wrong
If your head is high you'll never fear at all

There was a daughter of a man
Who took his life too young
She swore she'd never do the same
Then did just what he'd done

And a boy who's gone insane
Had voices in his head
No one knows what they say
Now his mother's dead

If you're free you'll never see the walls
If your head is clear you'll never free-fall
If you're right you'll never fear the wrong
If your head is high you'll never fear at all

There was a man who had a face
That looked a lot like me
I saw him in the mirror and
I fought him in the street

And when he turned away
I shot him in the head
Then I came to realize
I had killed myself

If you're free you'll never see the walls
If your head is clear you'll never free-fall
If you're right you'll never fear the wrong
If your head is high you'll never fear
