"Crown O' Thorn"

I look between the bars around my mind
At everything the world before has done
Perhaps my thoughts should leave them all behind
And grow towards a different blazing sun

But I can see beyond our pain and sorrow
And I must be a part of what's to come
I should not wait and act upon the morrow
When the strings of harmony can now be strummed

Oh, set me free from philosophy, from captivity,
From prejudice - oh, give me justice
Oh, set me free

I struggle with the earth and with my time
The parents of a people filled with rage
I fight them with my voice and with a rhyme
The keys to free my mind from its past cage

Oh, set me free from philosophy, from captivity,
From prejudice - oh, give me justice
Oh, set me free

My jailer and my savior yet unborn
Let me now release my crown o' thorn
