CHAINS

These chains, these infernal, invisible chains
Binding round our heart
Binding us together
Binding us apart.

These chains, these fragile chains of love
Of hope and trust
Fragile chains indeed
Trust in them we must.

This infinite useless fury surging deep inside
This helpless longing
This dead end road
Of futures now denied.

This hope, this delicate wind-torn hope
Gives us fortitude to dare
Distant vanishing horizon
Hope for us to share.

These chains, some day we'll shake these chains
Cast them all aside
Love will break free
From hearts imprisoned deep inside.
