Album: Into The Wild Soundtrack (2007)
  • On bended knee is no way to be free
    Lifting up an empty cup I ask silently
    That all my destinations will accept the one that's me
    So I can breath

    Circles they grow and they swallow people whole
    Half their lives they say goodnight to wive's they'll never know
    Got a mind full of questions and a teacher in my soul
    So it goes

    Don't come closer or I'll have to go
    Holding me like gravity are places that pull
    If ever there was someone to keep me at home
    It would be you

    Everyone I come across in cages they bought
    They think of me and my wandering
    But I'm never what they thought
    Got my indignation but I'm pure in all my thoughts
    I'm alive

    Wind in my hair, I feel part of everywhere
    Underneath my being is a road that disappeared
    Late at night I hear the trees
    They're singing with the dead

    Leave it to me as I find a way to be
    Consider me a satellite for ever orbiting
    I knew all the rules but the rules did not know me

  • Jjrg from Puebla MexicoIt is delightful, a lot of sense and meaning in this song. A little blue, but it is definitively a whisper to your ears and a pat for your soul and will.
  • Jblazebr1 from London Ontario Canadai agree 100% this is one POWERFUL song. Take the Guaranteed challenge. Try listening to the song by yourself and read the lyrics and if you dont find your inner soul and let out a good might not be a human. lol
