Race to the end lyrics

There is but one freedom
Man running along
Each step that he's taking
A step to his soul

The passion and courage
It takes to be there
the spirit of freedom
Alive in the air

Whenever the running man awakes
To challenge to glory,
he knows that he can turn
the key once more to unlock the soul

The way becomes clearer
The way is complete
The need that of winning
Admit no defeat

The circles together
Hold hands to the sky
The freedom of running
The freedom to try

Let no one surround himself with pain
But use it to free him
The game is to learn to live again
A race to the end
To try to the end
The game is to learn to live again
A race to the end
