Chains

This song is by Chicago and appears on the album Chicago 16 (1982).

I don't want any trouble
I don't want to make any waves
I don't want any conscience
And I don't wanna be brave

I've kept my distance
My feelings have never been shown
I know that I've been walking fences
Deny what I have known

And I carry chains
(I carry chains)
Heavy, heavy chains
(Chains that are made)
I carry chains (I carry chains) 'round my feet
I feel the weight (I feel the weight)
Chains are the different things
That should not be hanging on me

I put my conscience under a stone
The stone under the ground
Walked from where I had left it
I hoped it couldn't be found

My conscience persisted
It's a haunted seed I have sown
Calls me out from the distance
And it just won't leave me alone

And I carry chains
(I carry chains)
Chains that are made
(Chains that are made)
I carry heavy chains
(I carry chains)
Talk about the weight
(I feel the weight)

And I carry chains
(I carry chains)
Know I feel the weight
(Chains that are made)
I feel, I feel
(I carry chains)
Know I feel the weight
(I feel the weight)
Chains are the temporary things
That should not be hanging on me

(I carry chains)
Heavy, heavy, heavy
(Chains that are made)
I feel the weight
(I carry chains)
I carry chain
(I feel the weight)

I carry chains
(I carry chains)
I feel the weight
(Chains that are made)
Know I'm gonna carry chains
(I carry chains)
Come on, come on, come on, come on
(I feel the weight)
I, I, I
(I carry chains)
(Chains that are made)
(I carry chains)
Know I feel the weight
(I feel the weight)
Come on, come on
