Life is a prison…

Life is a prison
Oh God let me out 
No one to listen
To hear when you shout 


Climb the walls of insanity
Ride the waves of despair 
If you fall it don’t matter
There’s no one to care 


Used to wish for a window
To see birds, trees ‘n sky
But you’re better without one 
Stops you aiming too high 


Watching freedom is painful
For those locked away 
Seeing joy, love ‘n happiness
Another price that you pay 


Strong is good, weak is bad 
Be it false, be it true 
Your mind makes the choice
And enforces it too 


Cell walls built by society
With rules to adhere 
If you breach the acceptable
You had better beware 


Hide the pain, carry on
Routine is the key 
Don’t let on that you’re not
What you’re pretending to be 


Lock it all up inside you
How badly that bodes 
Look out for that one day
When it all just explodes 


Leaving naught but a shell
Base functionality too 
But killing all else
That was uniquely you 


So how do you grow
With a timebomb inside?
Or how to defuse it
Without destroying its ride?
You can’t,Life is a prison…!
