lyrics

GOLDEN CHAINS

I'm leaving go and laying down them golden chains, old boy
My body’s getting back at me for dancing without joy
Those hand-me-downs were all I ever got to use
To keep me free of fear and tied to you
Those hand-me-downs were all I ever got to use
To keep me free of fear and tied to you

The very worst thing that I have ever done
Was deliberately lose something I worked for hard and won
Those hand-me-downs were just to cut and dry
To vindicate my life and damn the lie
Those hand-me-downs were all I ever got to use
To keep me free of fear, keep me living here
They keep me free of fear and tied to you

Tragedy, it has an ancient soul
Small time desperation is the only thing I know
Those hand-me-downs were meant to satisfy
To keep us free of fear and half-alive
Those hand-me-downs were all I ever got to use
To keep me free of fear, keep me living here
They keep me free of fear and tied to youSmall time desperation is the only thing I know
Those hand-me-downs were meant to satisfy
To keep us free of fear and half-alive
Those hand-me-downs were all I ever got to use
To keep me free of fear, keep me living here
They keep me free of fear and tied to you

Those hand-me-downs
Those hand-me-downs
Those hand-me-downs, dragging me around
Those hand-me-downs are dragging me down
Those hand-me-downs, dragging me around
Those hand-me-downs
