Free to be free to be free

I’m dancing
and I don’t care what you say
I’m singing
even if you tell me to go away

I’m running
slower than every other chump
I’m jumping
by the sign that says “Don’t jump”

I’m moving
to my own beat of my own drum
I’m climbing
up and up till I say I’m done

I’m free, I’m free
I’m free to be
Free from chains
Free from history

Free of the anguish
and free of the pain
free to just languish
and soak in the rain

The glory of freedom
residing in me
now sets my path
from failure to victory
from nowhere
to destiny

Now I shout
and I don’t care
Now I boast
just about anywhere

Because:
I don’t need your approval
I don’t need your permission
I don’t need your blessing
I don’t need your acknowledgement
I don’t need your hand
I don’t need your mindless babble
I don’t need the world
to be free to be free to be free

The chains on others are enough
and I don’t need them in my stuff
I walk much better without them shackles
and talk much better with my mouth not shut

I’m a man on fire
and you’re watching me burn
Because it is only truth
that sets free if you yearn
to discover your path
with the light of your lamp
showing the way

I’m free, I’m free
I’m free to be
Free from chains
Free from history

I’m free to be free to be free.
