​Break These Chains

This song is by Icehouse and appears on the album Primitive Man (1982).

Tell me, where are you now
Now you know the way it feels
It was always easy for you
You've never been so down before
I saw you turning to go
I saw you walk away from me
But I don't have to play your game
I never did belong in here
I don't hear you anymore
You listen to me,
Now I'm standing on the outside
Watching it all come down on you
I've got to break these chains no,
You never could hold me down
I've got to break these chains
It doesn't matter to me now
I can leave it all behind well,
It's the anger in me
You put the anger in me
And I remember a time it's not so long ago
I was always on the other side
And I knew there must be more
Hearing all your empty words,
Your promises but now,
I'm standing on the outside
Watching it all come down on you
I've got to break these chains no,
You never could hold me down
I've got to break these chains
