Won’t you take one link
From this misery chain?
Keep it to remind you
Of a long forgotten
Time or a place
So that you’ll recognize
Its shape when it’s near
Any time or place this misery chain
Should appear

Take the locks and shackles
And melt all of it down
Shine a light upon
Every shadow
Every acre of ground
The hidden corners
On, in or around
Anywhere you fear this

Misery chain should be found

And when we’re gone
And it’s all said and done
What will we leave?
The stories told
Will they speak of us well?

God only knows
What those words will be

And if I should fall
From the top of the world
To the depths below
So far below what I believed
Could exist

Down further still will be
The one who hides the key
And dares to try to put these misery chains on me

And when we’re gone
And it’s all said and done
What will we leave

The stories told
Will they speak of us well?
God only knows
What those words will be

Won’t you take one link
From this misery chain?
Keep it to remind you
Of a long forgotten time
Or a place
So that you’ll recognize it
’til it’s understood
That every trace
Of this misery chain
Is gone for good
’til every trace
Of this misery chain
Is gone.
