Lyrics:

He wants to spread his wings and fly

But the world won’t let him

He wants to show the people why

But they want to forget him

 

He’s a lone free rider

He is the outsider

 

He sees the shadows closing in

All is greed and fear

The world is caught up in a spin

Blind to what is clear

 

He’s a lone free rider

He is the outsider

 

He has really no direction

Yet he knows he’s always right

When he catches his reflection

In the middle of the night

 

The outsider’s incantations

Falling on deaf ears

While the world’s own machinations

Always end in tears

 

He’s a lone free rider

He is the outsider

 

When he gets away to find

A favoured path to tread

It always leads him back in time

To the world that’s dead

 

He’s a lone free rider

He is the outsider

 

He has really no direction

Yet he knows he’s always right

When he catches his reflection

In the middle of the night

 

He’s a lone free rider

He is the outsider

 

He has really no direction

Yet he knows he’s always right

When he catches his reflection

In the middle of the night

In the middle of the night
