So now you're free
you're in a new city,
free from your town
free from your family now.
You've come to make it on your own,
well how's that freedom feel
when you're squandering it all alone?
Getting stoned on the couch
in your broke-ass home
trying to figure out
why you had something to prove
yeah, you practiced your power to choose,
now you're staring at the ceiling
trying to remember that old, warm feeling
you felt in the woods with your friends
drinking around a fire
a fire that you thought would never end,
now look at the smoke
curling at the corners of the room that you hoped
would save you
would bathe you--
cleanse you of your ever-impending dread,
sometimes you wish you were dead
but that'd be too easy
yeah, you know what they said.
How can we come out of fear?
Help me out of fear, help me out of here.

So you followed your dream
and it's not what it seemed
when you were bumming at your mom's house
sulking alone in your room
thinking up an epitaph fit for your tomb;
indignant for a cause, for a lack of applause--
sizing up your life without ever having left the womb.
Didn't they tell you? They don't want you,
they just want to sell you.
Just want to be free as a bird.
Just want to have your heart heard.

Just want to be free as a bird.
Just want to have your heart heard.
