The boundaries of my mind

are the cell where I'm confined

they break my will and drown my soul

so that a thousand times I've died

But my rage is softer than sorrow

since to flee is swifter than wings

and my life is a tale of tomorrows

strung on a tightening string

For, you see, I am no master

and it seems I am no king

I will never bear the answers

nor any diamond ring

The boundaries of my mind

are the cell where I'm confined

they draw me in and hold me close

and reveal my world defined

Fame and power cloak the weak

and hide the wars we lose

as do guilt and shame at peak

determine the lives we choose

But of destiny? Ah, destiny!

tell me-have you seen the lives we lead?

no lies or dreams or drugs can hide

the malice and the greed

The boundaries of my mind

are the cell where I'm confined

they feed my fury and desire at will

promising all I've been denied

From farmers who never reap

to widows who never cry

our plight is one and all the same

and there's no denying why

What if time was of the essence,

and apocalypse now nears?

one could renew the passion

one could renew the years

But the thrill of the hunt, the chase and the fight

drive me to perfection once more

then back to the walls of starless night

to lie on the bloodstained floor

The boundaries of my mind

are the cell where I'm confined

they break my will and drown my soul,

now a thousand times I've died
