This track captures in part the two-man ensemble that acoustic artist Michael Miles performed as under the name "Two Mile Stretch" with percussionist James Orvis.


I can't stand your oppression
Or tolerate your obsession
I'm just not good enough for you
Won't stand for your control
Or give you another inch of my soul
As far as we're concerned, you're through

Caught in the ring your fear
Snared by what you whisper in my ear
That there's nothing of worth in me
But I'm so through with your lies
Oppressing things you devise
For all I care you can rot in your debris

Is it too much to ask to stretch my wings out and fly
Is it too much to dream that I might have something worth giving
Before I die

Won't hear your confession
Or believe your observation
Of all the things you think you see in me
But I won't put up with your mind control
Be blind no more, will open the door
Let freedom roll and soar and stop keeping score
Finally see and believe what it really means to live free indeed
