Harry Houdini was a great illusionist and escapologist. Throughout his career, he also took advantage of his fame to debunk fraudulent mediums, embracing intellect against superstition.
"My brain is the key that sets me free," he used to say.
No other human could serve as a better metaphor for freedom.

Lyrics

Chains are not what you expect them to be.
I looked for the truth to set me free.
Chains are not what you expect them to be.
I looked for the truth to set you free, my love.

Years go by like a prophet in songs,
they shake your hand and say "don't let us go".
My body, my mind they can play tricks sometimes
but I'm a free man, in a world of disguise.

Take my word and believe what you see.
I am no pretender and I never surrender.
Take my word and believe what you feel.
I am no pretender, I am no pretender.

Some people are born with a thorn in their side.
They shake their heads and say: "You won't stay alive".
Some people are born with a hole in their soul.
They look at you and you let it go.

Love's a cure, more often a pain,
but I can't get enough of this summer rain.
These chains are breaking but this heart's made of ice
and I cannot look into your eyes.

Take my word and believe what you see.
I am no pretender and I never surrender.
Take my word and believe what you feel.
I am no pretender, I am no pretender.
