Set Me Free

Set Me Free Have you heard the news? Mr. E has caught the blues Wrestled it down with his bare hands Tied it up with paper and strings Keeps it on a shelf in a room Only lets it out when he writes or he sings The case is getting dusty as of late The pen and parchment have to wait Strings dead and rusting Dreams dead and rusting Missing M’lady’s lullabies Mi muse “sic” is missing For her I’m lusting A little bit of loss And a whole lot of hurt I turn and I toss And wear the same shirt Gathering moss Still feet will not win the day Pain won’t roll the stone away Need a way to convert the dirt Flowers weren’t meant to grow in Clay Have you heard the news? Mystery has caught the blues Or maybe it caught him No way to really know Pray someday he’ll find a way And be free to let it go
