lockup

you've done your dirty deed
so go ahead and take a bow
i can never be freed
i've forgotten how

after many tries
you've finally knocked me down
they all believe the lies
you've spread through this one horse town

you've finally confined me
but i still reserve free will
i am right where you want me to be
but you can't make me stay still

they've drugged up my brain
i can barely think
they'll know if i'm insane
by if i float or sink

trapped here i cannot chase my dreams
so for now, i guess, you win
but no matter how bad it seems
someday i will rise again

i have tasted freedom
so i'll never cease to try
you cannot lay on the ground for long
after you've touched the sky
