freedom and its owner lyrics – kings of convenience

“freedom and its owner”

the beauty memories of all the places
of all the places
we’ve captured with our camera
we’ve seen the pyramids
we’ve seen the louvre
we’ve seen the orion upside down
total eclipses and moonlight shadows
we’ve seen dolphins jumping waves
we’ve ski’ed the mountains and we swam in the rivers
and let the sunlight dry our skins

but freedom, freedom never greater than its owner
freedom is the mastery of the known
freedom, freedom never greater than its owner
no view is wider than the eye

show a view to someone who chose to live his whole life in cave
he’ll raise his arms to protect his eyes from burning
and the blindness to which he belongs
this time it’s me, it’s me
cascades of chances i’ll just let them be
the unfamiliar is right below our eyes
don’t look for what we know
the unfamiliar is right below our eyes

but freedom, freedom never greater than its owner
freedom is the mastery of the known
freedom, freedom never greater than its owner
no view is wider than the eye
