Captive Body Open Mind

They can lock me away

Bind me with chains 

Hide me from the light and say

That I do not know what I am meant to be 

But they cannot stop a girl 

Who has seen beyond the castle walls 

And knows

The world is 




Than balls and gowns

For broken wings can heal 

Thus I will be free 

And I will fly

Once More
