BEHIND THESE BARS

This song is dedicated to Pablo Ibar and his struggle

WRONG PLACE, ARRESTED
CAGED, FRUSTRATED
LOCKED UP, ISOLATED
TRYING TO BRING MY KNOCKED OUT SOUL TO LIFE

AND I KNOW ALL MY TEARS MEAN NOTHING HERE
IS REAL LIFE WAITING FOR ME?

HERE I STAND BEHIND THESE BARS
I AM THE MISTAKE MADE BY THE MEN PLAYING GODS
HERE I WAIT BEHIND THESE BARS
BUT I KNOW THAT HOLY HEAVEN’S BY MY SIDE

FRAMED UP, AND HATED
A CRACKDOWN, A LETTER
SCAPEGOATS AND SINNERS
CRYING RIVERS WON’T BRING DOWN THIS WALLS

AND I KNOW ALL THE FAULTS I SHOULD PAY FOR
I NEVER DID THE RIGHT THING THOUGHT
BUT I HAVEN’T KILLED A MAN IN MY WHOLE LIFE
THE WEIGHT OF LIES IS
SHATTERING MY SPINE

NO, IT WASN’T ME
NO, HOW CAN’T YOU SEE THAT I CAN’T KILL MY HOPE
FOR TRUTH TO TRIUMPH
AND I WILL NOT STOP MY FIGHT

HERE I STAND BEHIND THESE BARS
WAITING FOR THE DAY I’LL REACH THE BRIGHT BLUE SKY
I WILL BREAK THESE
RUSTY BARS
MY LONELY NIGHTS ARE
CLOSE TO AN END
I WON’T GIVE UP, FOR RIGHTS, FOR LIFE
