Free Yourself

Bob Hinrichs


Could be right

It could be that kind of night

Waking up you find yourself within the world

The stars, oh the stars

All of the lights, and the cars

All the pylons and the freeways traveled on

They are always calling

Always calling


Free yourself

Free yourself

It's the chance you've waited for

It's time to do something

Time to stop doing

Time to start being

Time to be living

All the world will join in singing

Let the telephones keep ringing

You might be unknown

You're not alone

oh no


Standing tall

Here at the start of it all

Wise beyond our years

Yet living young and free

What you've done

This is your victory won

over everything that you were born to be

And the world is waiting

We are waiting


Free yourself

Free yourself

It's the chance we've waited for

It's time to do something

Time to stop doing

Time to start being

Time to be living

This could call for celebration

This could be the last temptation

And you're not alone

You know you've grown

Be strong


Good little soldier

You carried the world upon your shoulders

A quixotic attempt at total control

Over illusions

It came at the cost of your soul

Until now

You have to let it go

Let it go

Feel the joy rush in


One day, someday,

When all this is long past away

We'll look back and see

How very far we've come

Believe, believe

Sure as the breaking of day

Even yet we'll have our moment in the sun

And the end of waiting

End of waiting

...
