Just as the heart beats

In the darkness of the body

So I despite this cage

I continue to beat with life

Those who have no courage or honour

Consider themselves free, but they are slaves

I am flying on the wings of thought

And so, even in this cage

I know a greater freedom

I am flying on the wings of thought

Just as the heart beats

In the darkness of the body

So I despite this cage

I continue to beat with life

On the wings of thought
