all locked up, but without bars
eighty-plus in a room, the world so far
away from those we hold so dear
how the hell did I end up here

so much anger and so much strife
it's a whole different kind of life
one of sorrow and of pain
my life will never be the same

for all those I took for granted
who never left me alone and stranded
I'm sorry for the pain I put you through
I promise to make it up to you

behind these walls I've found a new home
with One who made me from up above
and if I will always keep Him near
I will never again end up back in here
