Prison, you're locked and barred within your prison
Prison, forever guarded in your prison,
Prison, where others make all your decisions
And when his wings are cut a bird forgets how to fly.
Prison, you sit alone inside your prison,
Prison, you've got a home inside your prison,
Prison, so many envy your position,
But without freedom how can all your dreams come alive?
Prison, there’s no escaping from that prison,
Prison, time melts away inside that prison,
Prison, can't even play without permission
And there’s a chain attached to every song that you sing.
Prison, you live a lie inside your prison,
Prison, your gonna die inside your prison,
Prison, you call yourself a Rock Musician,
But you're a prisoner for those who pull your strings.
