Lyris Below:

I spent most of my life in chains
For thirty five years serving others

Chains, chains, I mean chains
You know I’ve been living in chains
Sorrow, seven kinds of sorrow

Help me, help me I’m in chains
Chains, oh chains, help me I’m in chains
Spent most of my life in chains
Oh, sorrow, sorrow
All I want to do is oh
Oh I’m in misery, yeah
I’m just a man
Don’t understand, why they’re treating me this way
Why they put me in these chains!
Why they put me in these chains ?

Tried to escape these chains
But they keep calling me, they keep calling me
Oh, oh, oh
