what is the meaning of ´´I was bound to a burden, but the burden it was raised´´
the text is part of song by leonard cohen, it is called ´´Born In Chains´´ popular problems album.
I was born in chains but I was taken out of Egypt
I was bound to a burden, but the burden it was raised
Oh Lord I can no longer keep this secret
Blessed is the name, the name be praised.
I fled to the edge of a mighty sea of sorrow
Pursued by the armies of a cruel and dark regime
But the waters parted and my soul crossed over
Out of Egypt, out of Pharaoh’s dream
