Water Mill Heading

Round an' round an' round
Goes the perpetual wheel
As the river runs by
and leaves you behind

The little boy is running
around the stinking mill
through the decayed forest
No path out he can find
They all lead back to

Why won't you let me out
Let me out, let me go
let me go, let me out

The house by the mill is so small
So big that it entombs the whole forest
Why can't I see the bars
on the large windows
I can't touch them, but they are there

The little boy is running
Eyes are filled with wonder
Eyes are filled with fear
Muscles feels like lead
As he tries to jump high enough
to touch the sky behind the clouds

I saw you dead
In a dream I saw you dead
And it happened
I'm free
