Lyrics

Prisoner
Words and music by:
Tom Cadham and Ben Goerner
Copyright 2004

The chains that hold me back grip me fast and hold me tight
I can?t stand the day and I can?t sleep at night
Bound here by the truth sheltered by the lies
There?s nowhere I can go, and I?ve just realized

I?m a prisoner and I cannot get away (2nd and I can?t take another day)
I?m a prisoner and it looks like I?m here to stay

I?ve lived a life of anger, found my courage on the street
Taking all I wanted from almost anyone I?d meet.
I shot a man just to bring him down and take what wasn?t mine
I thought I had outrun the law but I lost at the county line

Chorus

Sitting all alone in all this silence
Except when angry echoes crack the walls
The pain of knowing its forever
As sure as the judge?s hammer falls

Solo
