Lyrics

ALCATRAZ
Verse 1
I dealt in prostitution
That needed retribution
It led to life cessation
And then to my conviction
Now its incarceration
Verse 2
Wild outcast of society
Confined by bars of jealousy
Aint got no worth, no dignity
A senseless waste of humanity
Has rendered incapacity
Pre-chorus
Has it torn me with guilt? Yes it has
Has it taken my pride? Yes it has
Has it torn me with guilt? Yes it has
Has it taken my pride? Yes it has
Stuck in this prison called Alcatraz
called Alcatraz
chorus

Bridge
An illicit still, taken out from the crowd
It's 1942, I am under a shroud,
My spirit is broken, my head is bowed
Nowhere to hide, when my name is Stroud.

Has it torn me with guilt? Yes it has
Has it taken my pride? Yes it has
Has it torn me with guilt? Yes it has
Has it taken my pride? Yes it has
Stuck in this prison called Alcatraz
called Alcatraz

verse 3
In a state penitentiary,
Be sure of this I guarantee
I will go down in history
As it's most famous detainee
A case of "Birdman Infamy".

Has it torn me with guilt? Yes it has
Has it taken my pride? Yes it has
Has it torn me with guilt? Yes it has
Has it taken my pride? Yes it has
Stuck in this prison called Alcatraz
called Alcatraz

If only I could fly away and be free
If only I could fly away and be free
Get back to the day, yeh
when I ceased to be me
when I ceased to be me
In Alcatraz
when I ceased to be me
