Prisoner

Prisoner

 

Put no end to uncertainty

With all your sightless prophecies

Put one foot forward one foot back

But you’re a prisoner like that

 

And you’re holding on for dear life

Jumping off like faster times

When your fear is your jail

And your love is your bail

 

Put no end to this script of words

Out of your mouth it sounds absurd

It serves to dignify your scars

Leaving you behind fences and bars

 

Every direction’s a dead end

With every moment that you spend

Finding answers in the past

You’re just a prisoner and you’re

 

Holding on for dear life

Jumping off like faster times

When your fear is your jail

And your love is your bail

 

The depths that I could fall

The heights that I could reach

When my mind is my grave

Your heart will have me saved

 

Don’t you hold on for dear life

Jump like faster times

When your fear is your jail

And your love is your bail

When there’s nowhere left to fall

All you have is heights to reach

When your mind’s in its right place

Your heart will keep you safe
