1. Underneath

From the recording Chained


I crawled through life
Seeking a place to hide
Crippled from inside
Spent all my days
Avoiding everything
That could end in shame

So wasteful!
What am I?
What am I?
A number!
What am I?
Lost underneath…

I walked through life
Setting my pace behind
Those with grand designs
Waited and frowned
Afraid to forge ahead
Safer to be led

Self-absorbed, self-denied
Turning a blind eye, but…
I am not your slave!
