My Own Prison

1.A court is in session, a verdict is in
No appeal on the docket today, Just my own sin
The walls are cold and pale, The cage made of steel
Screams fill the room, Alone I drop and kneel
Silence now the sound, My breath the only motion around
Demons cluttering around, My face showing no emotion
Shackled by my sentence, Expecting no return
Here there is no penance, My skin begins to burn
2.I hear a thunder in the distance, See a vision of a cross
I feel the pain that was given on that sad day of loss
A lion roars in the darkness, Only he holds the key
A light to free me from my burden and grant me life eternally
Should have been dead on a Sunday morning banging my head
No time for mourning, Ain't got no time
  So I held my head up high
  Hiding hate that burns inside
 Which only fuels their selfish pride
  We're all held captive out from the sun
 A sun that shines only on some
 We the meek are all in one


 I cry out to God, Seeking only his decision
 Gabriel stands and confirms I've created my own prison
