My Own Prison

In the style of

Creed

Lyrics

court is in session
a verdict is in
no appeal on
the docket today
just my own sin

the walls
cold and pale
the cage
made of steel
screams
fill the room
alone
i drop and kneel

silence
now the sound
my breath
the only
motion around

demons
cluttering around
my face
showing no emotion

shackled
by my sentence
expecting no return
here there is
no penance
my skin begins to burn

so i held
my head up high
hiding hate
that burns inside
which only fuels
their selfish pride

all held captive
out from the sun
a sun that shines
on only some
we the meek
are all in one

i hear a thunder
in the distance
see a vision
of a cross
i feel the pain
that was given on
that sad day of loss

a lion roars
in the darkness
only he holds the key
a light to free me
from my burden
and grant me life
eternally

should have
been dead on
a sunday morning
banging my head
no time for mourning
ain't got no time

should have
been dead on
a sunday morning
banging my head
no time for mourning
ain't got no time

so i held
my head up high
hiding hate
that burns inside
which only fuels
their selfish pride

all held captive
out from the sun
a sun that shines
on only some
we the meek
are all in one

i cry out to god
seeking only
his decision
gabriel stands
and confirms
i've created
my own prison

i cry out to god
seeking only
his decision
gabriel stands
and confirms
i've created
my own prison

so i held
my head up high
hiding hate
that burns inside
which only fuels
their selfish pride

we're all
held captive
out from the sun
a sun that shines
on only some
we the meek
are all in one

so i held
my head up high
hiding hate
that burns inside
which only fuels
their selfish pride

i've created
i've created
i've created
i've created
i've created
i've created
my own prison

should have
been dead on
a sunday morning
banging my head
no time for mourning
ain't got no time
