"Free" is the sixth track on Switchfoot's seventh album, Hello Hurricane.


I’ve got my back against the wall
But I still hear the blue sky call

The chains that hold me back inside
are the prisons of my mind

Come set me free
Down on my knees
I still believe you can save me from me
come set me free
come set me free
inside this shell
there’s a prison cell

I try to live the light of day
why would I do what I hate

But when try to reach above
I only I hurt the ones I love

there’s a hole in the neighborhood
where the shadows fall

there’s a hole in my heart but my hope
is not in me at all

I had a dream that my chains were broken
broken, broken, broken open
