    You might not recognize me now
    Those  chains that once surrounded me are laying on the ground
    You  can’t keep digging up my past
    You may have had a laugh or two but you don’t get the last
    You might not recognize me now

    Maybe  I was blind but now I see
    Maybe  I was bound but now I’m free
    Maybe you need reminding
    You’re  under my feet
    Maybe you’re a lie that I don’t need
    Maybe you should listen when I speak
    Maybe you need reminding
    You’re  under my feet
