lyrics

Verse
Your thoughts sound different when sing to me
Than in conversation-o
Are the products of someone else's mine
Refined and sold on radio

Your thoughts to me sound so familiar
Your language seems so normal-o
But this sonic world that you're composing
To me's unrecognisable

Chorus
Are your thoughts incarcerated
Behind bars of imperial steel?
There's no key you'll have break them with
A sovereign mind free of imperial zeal
