Cost of Freedom

Cost of Freedom  

The sun is rising over the sea

the light it brings forth now awakens me

to this day

My mind drifts free like the clouds in the sky

the only friend I have out here  is the shadow on my side

I am free

The journey I seek down this long forsaken beach

is one on my own and one on my feet

today

And the tracks that I leave will be all of my own

when the tide comes in, she’ll take them to her home

out to sea

I look over my shoulder to see where I’ve been

all the tracks have vanished, there’s no trace of them

anymore

I look down at my shadow and it silhouettes my thoughts

walking so carefree, you’re bound to get lost

every time

Soon the sun will be setting out over this land

and I will lay me down upon this sand

for the night

As the early morning sun rises over the sea

and brings back that friend of mine that’s a part of me

in the day

I will start my journey where I left off

maybe walk a different route so I don’t get lost

once again

As I walk down this beach in the way that I choose

there’s no trace of me in the footprints that I lose

I am lost

Am I going in circles?

Am I going anywhere?

What does it matter, I don’t seem to care,

I am free
