I find my freedom in the sky full of light
I feel free on the dust and grass of this earth
In music I freely float on high
And I lose myself
Far beyond the bounds of this body and mind
I feel free among the minds of men
Defying danger and death
I find my freedom in doing difficult things
This earth is God's holy ground
To purge the soul
Here a holy fire eternally burns
May I sacrifice my life in that fire
Seeking my salvation in the end !
