Lyrics:

Tied up, Tied down
© Sky Nelson 2007

Hey little boy, you gotta chain around your neck.
Where are your toys? Did you lose them in a five-day week?
do you want to turn back, revoke the vows you've made?
It's in your hands.

Tied up, tied down, who work your soul right into the ground.
Tied up, tied down for life.

No I'm not afraid of the great unknown that swallows us all when the sun sets on our lives.
But I tremble to think of never standing under the light,
it's in my hands.

Tied up, tied down, who work your soul right into the ground.
Tied up, tied down for life.
Tied up, tied down, who work your soul right into the ground.
Tied up, tied down for life.

Did someone tell you they could tell you what was possible?
Did someone tell you they could tell you what was real?
Did someone tell you they could tell you what your life was really made for?

No I don't want to see you fall from the dreams you've had, when they're so much left in you.
The same voices that tell you how to live your life regret their own.

Tied up, tied down, who work your soul right into the ground.
Tied up, tied down for life.
Tied up, tied down, who work your soul right into the ground.
Tied up, tied down for life.
Tied up, tied down, who work your soul right into the ground.
Tied up, tied down for life.
