Artist's Notes

Dedicated to Raju the Elephant, who was held in captivity for fifty years before being freed.

Lyrics

For many years I've been held captive
Bound in these chains and trying to escape
And now with a war-torn mind
I've given up hope, said that it's too late
Every day I feel the pain
A lowlife is all I'll ever be
But now I'm no longer a slave to shame
I'm living free

The weight of the world was on my feet
A prisoner was all I had become
Every heartbeat brought another sorrow
I was almost certain that I was done

But in the depth of my darkest hour
An unexpected saint freed me from my pain
And with a new soul, I'm living free
I'm no longer a slave to shame
Living free

Nothing to quench this haunting thirst
Nothing to feed my dying soul
The demons inside are celebrating
As I start to lose my hold

But in the depth of my darkest hour
An unexpected saint freed me from my pain
And with a new soul, I'm living free
I'm no longer a slave to shame
Living free

For generations my story will be told
To think about when you meet someone like me
Who's life is about breaking the chains
A victim of the blindness of greed

But in the depth of my darkest hour
An unexpected saint freed me from my pain
And with a new soul, I'm living free
I'm no longer a slave to shame
Living free
