Beyond mine world,

mine vision have taken me,

Beyond mine clear glass walls.

And showeth me that mine brethren art for now,

imprisoned in their cells.

At which hour I take it upon myself

To protest for freedom, for justice, for faith.

Thou has’t decided to single me out, is that not right?

Silencing mine voice in the darkness of the night.

Wherefore has’t thee readeth the Riot Act of the English, when but one man speaks for twelve?

Wherefore has’t thee imprisoned mine brethren, and feed those folk humble pie?

At which hour I take it upon myself

To protest for freedom, for justice, for faith,

Thou has’t decided to take me away

Quieting mine voice despite the brightness of the day.

Wherefore has’t thee ruled with tyranny, at which hour none has’t challenged thee?

Wherefore has’t thee subdued mine voice, with thy ruthless omnipotent might?

Beyond mine world

mine vision have taken me,

Beyond mine clear glass walls.

And showeth me that mine brethren art for eternity,

condemned within their cells.
