V1:

I can't see the writing

I don't have my glasses on

There's an empty space in front of me

The wall must be long gone

I can't see the writing

The words have all faded away

I guess I'll never know, now

What they were always trying to say

C:

So now I'm free

To find my own way

Whether it's right

Or whether it's wrong

I'll find out some other day

Because I'm free

To live my own life

Eventually it all must end

But it doesn't have to be tonight

V2:

I can't see the faces

I can't see their piercing stares

There's a sea of people crashing over me

But I really just don't care

I can't see the faces

I can't see the smiles or the frowns

Normally I'd be curious

But today they can't bring me down

C:

Because now I'm free

To live my own way

Whether it's wrong

Or whether it's right

I really cannot say-ay-ay

Because I'm still free

To live my own life

Eventually my luck will turn

But, hey, I think I'll survive

V3:

I can see the sunlight

I can feel the wind on my skin

I think that I can finally believe

That there's something stirring from within

I can see the sunlight

I finally put my glasses on

The words are all still missing

But I'm finally moving on

C:

Because I am free

To find my own way

Whether it's right

Or whether it's wrong

Fate will have to call some other day

Because today

I'll be living my own life

Eventually it all must end

But it isn't gonna be tonight
