about

This is a cover of an Adrian Borland song and our tribute to a great songwriter and musician through The Sound, his collaborations and solo work.

lyrics

My spirit`s free, you won`t get me
Into the box your life is locked in
Your value system`s broken down
I see it blocks the road you stopped in

And every day the things you crave
Make a play for my affection
I tell you straight, I won`t be swayed
I`m walking in the opposite direction

They scream at me from flashing screens
They hassle me from city walls
But these are other people`s dreams
They don`t resemble mine at all

And every day the things you crave
Make a play for my affection
I tell you straight, I won`t be swayed
I`m walking in the opposite direction

The stuff that you hold dear and high
How does it warrant such devotion?
I think you`ve lost the reason why
Though you still carry on the motion

Every day the things you crave
Make a play for my affection
I tell you straight, I won`t be swayed
I`m walking in the opposite direction
