I left my home still as a child , I walked a thousand soary miles
To wait for my father, to gather up his tools
He said my boy you've got to run, don't wait for me, don't wait for mum
We'll come get you, when it's safe for us to move

So I waited many years, held back the pain behind my tears
For my father, to come find me like he said
And in that time I was alone, so many years without my home
I made brothers of a different kind instead

And in the time I didn't know, just how hard the wind could blow
Towards disaster, and the things that I would see
I never found my father, I never found my mother
Even would I know in my lifetime I will be

A hero into the masses, to those born without chances
There's a freedom that everyone deserves
I know there's greed and there's corruption
I've seen death and mass destruction
But I'm telling you, and I hope that I'm heard

And I will not be commanded
And I will not be controlled
And I will not let my future go on
Without the help of my soul

And I will not be commanded
And I will not be controlled
And I will not let my future go on
Without the help of my soul

And I will not be commanded
And I will not be controlled
And I will not let my future go on
Without the help of my soul

And I will not be commanded
And I will not be controlled
And I will not let my future go on
Without the help of my soul
