about

Obligation, bills, an' debt. Only toil 'till yer dead. What you own now owns you.

lyrics

All our lives men are told, make your fortune strive for gold
From the day we’re born
Find a job and get a wife, a house and children do it right
That’s where I am torn
‘Cause at the end o’ that haul, you got nothin’ though you have it all
The weight it runs you through
Obligation bills and debt, only toil till yer dead
What you own now owns you
…I want nothin’, pure and true

Take me cash take me jewels, take me future hang the rules
Means nothin’ to me (…HUH! …HAH!)
Keep yer titles and demands, keep yer lovers and yer lands
So I may be free (…HUH! …HAH!)
Take it all take me name, take me fortune and me fame
Nothin’ for me own (…HUH! …HAH!)
Take it all do as ye would, I’d give ya my skin if I could
Even take me bones (…HUH! …HAH!)
…I want nothin’, pure and true

I take vow, I will be free
Renounce all, and nothin’ will be for me
I’ll sail, I’ll fight, I’ll kill, and I shall do as I please
And no encumbered life, shall bring me to my knees!

Live… vow… nothing… now
Be… free… nothing for me
Live… vow… nothing… now
Be… free… nothing for me

I take vow, I will be free
Renounce all, and nothin’ will be for me
I’ll sail, I’ll fight, I’ll kill, and I shall do as I please
And no encumbered life, shall bring me to my knees!

I will keep to me vow, free forever starting now
I shall not retreat (…HUH! …HAH!)
Now unbridled and exempt, exonerated and content
I’m at last complete (…HUH! …HAH!)
…I am free, pure and true
