These Four walls


When all is said and done

When they lay our bones to rest

Maybe then theyíll understand

Why we couldnít live like all the rest
 

Time changes people

And sometimes change is cruel

That face in the mirror is looking old and ill

So easy to go to sleep

Just to let it all go

But then youíre as good as dead

A drunk passed out in the winter snow
 

When you know in your gut

You canít go back

You have to run from the pack

These four walls

Would have killed me

I had to get free
 

Trying so hard

To feel whole

We abused our bodies

Trying to find our souls

Looking half dead

But never feeling more alive

At least we never gave in

Never gave in to the easy life
 

When you know in your gut

You canít go back

You have to run from the pack

These four walls

Would have killed me

I had to get free
 

I never knew that these dreams would

Take me so far from home

My life, my love

To the end my very own
 

When you know in your gut

You canít go back

You have to run from the pack

These four walls

Would have killed me

I had to get free

I had to be free

I still have to get free

Highest of highs

The lowest of lows

Where this all stops

Nobody knows
