1. In this sweet place where freedom reigns
Secured by bolts and snug in chains,
Where innocence and guilt together
Roost like two birds of a feather,
Dreamers dream in their mind's eye
And sinners safe at anchor lie.
2. Where all is guarded and recluse,
That none his liberty can lose.
‘Though captive all day long it's true,
At night I am as free as you.
I can run or swim or fly,
Trace my empire through the sky.
Seasons change like moons for me: I can make a desert a sea...
3. (Guitar solo)
I can run or swim or fly;
4. I dream a thousand shining things in gloom,
Like glow-worms twinkling in a tomb.
In my mind I run and run
To breathe the air and feel the sun.
Tears of rage and tears of pain
Wash my spirit home again.
