"PET SHOP"

Verse 1
Passin' by a pretty pet shop window,
The captives there were barking at their walls.
No one had time to stop and give them comfort,
Or answer when the voice of bondage called.
--- Repeat twice

Turning back and goin' on my journey,
I realized the world was just the same.
The people who were walkin' here beside me,
Were only in a little bigger cage.

Chorus
Listen to me, if you're searchin', if you're lookin' to be free.
Hear the words of freedom, there's a place for you and me.
Get on board, don't be left out in the storm,
Before the chance is gone…you must flee.

Lead Break: --- Repeat four times

Verse 2
I wish I had a way to break your cages,
And lift the iron bars from off your walls.
But you alone can break the chains that bind you, bind you,
And take the hand of freedom when she calls.
I see the lonely tears within you cryin',
Although your face is dry and wears a smile.
There's so much more to life than bein' empty,
When you could have had the answers all thewhile.

Repeat Chorus twice
… We must flee.
