*I did a vocal of this song as an example my voice. The production is a little corny, I realize. An acquaintance generously recorded this for free.
There's a cold wind a comin'
but there's chains at my door
because I got no money
but I'm helpless to get home
You know I cry, you know it's wrong
You know I die, but you let it, ya you let go on
Breaking these chains, one by one
Breaking these chain, you've already won
I'm not playing with human chains/You won the game of human chains/we're all to blame, for what we've made
And so you pass me by
on the way to your charity dinner
Did you know my child died
just so you could look like a winner?
The rich spin the wheel, like life is a game
ya, you took a chance, that human flesh, that human flesh would pay
All I ever wanted was to fly
Feel the freedom, that you've known in this world
All I ever wanted was my girl to go to school
my son to wear new shoes, do the things you do
but you let it, ya, you let go on
