Free World (Sexton Martin)

I've been stemmin' for change and singing in these streets now Long as I care to recall The dank little loung room in the Roosevelt hotel My idea of a holiday Every once in a while A little old light shines through my tunnel So I follow it like a moth flies to the flame. And just when I think I got my world by the balls I find I'm dancin' in the light again Dancing in the light Of a speeding freight train Singing it's hard Living in the free world Getting saved by the bell People find my company To be strange as hell Looking back on aspirations and dreams My father he had in mind for me Moon lights the tracks and broken glass as I recall Those plans I left so far behind And I know it's better off he never saw me this way He always told me donÃ?t let the devil have his due And I know my father would turn over in his grave To see me hog tied to the chain Or dancing in the light Of a speeding freight train Singing it's hard Living in the free world Getting saved by the bell People find my company To be strange as hell And its only getting harder in this free world With all this strugglin g and strain People find my sweet peace of mind In the pouring rain As the storm moves in ain't no friends to be found So I sit Ã?neath this dream and bridge for a while And it seems that my mind is in pieces on the ground Singing it's hard Living in the free world Getting saved by the bell Mostly find my Jesus In the pouring rain I'm living in the free world
