Lyrics

There's a prison by the lake
All its doors are open wide
And the inmates stand unshackled
As they mill about inside
But the warden he don't come down here no more
No the warden he don't come down here no more
No the warden he don't come down here no more

On the corner stands a church
All its windows look so fine
And the neighbors come to congregate
And stand outside in line
But the preacher he don't come down here no more
..

There's a school up on a hill
All its lessons are on the wall
And the children line up one-by-one
And wait out in the hall
But the teacher she don't come down here no more
..

I once lived along this road
All its houses painted red
And I walked paths of innocence
No matter where they led
But whoever that was he don't come down here no more
