05. Prisoner

Handmade
by The Ongoing Concept



 

Baby donít you wanna hear what I have to say?
Theyíve told you not to be like me, that Iím a useless fool.
But baby itís hard to see when everything youíve heard is smoke and mirrors.
Itís time you lift that veil from your eyes and see where this lie will lead.

Donít swallow that lie. Spit it back up and sing this with me.
One. Two. Ready.

Give it up all you liars and thieves.
Give it up, youíre killing passion with greed.
Weíre all just prisoners.

Maybe Iím just enraged because I played the game for thirteen years,
and they say I have to follow through or stay irresolute.
Yet I watch them rob the youth and swear to them that itís a necessity.
To turn boy into a man, this has to be the only way.

Itís the only way. And they say, ďJoin or die.Ē Fund that lie.
Now how do I put this lightly?

Give it up all you liars and thieves.
Give it up, youíre killing passion with greed.
Weíre all just prisoners.

I wonít be a victim.
Iíll work for distinction not a printed page.
I wonít be a victim.
Iím not your prisoner.

Prey on the minds of the young and defenseless.
Watch as they fall for the lies and deception.
If you hear a lie for long enough and loud enough,
it wonít be long until you begin to believe it.

Itís just a matter of time. And you better watch your back because youíve made an enemy. Iím your enemy.

Give it up all you liars and thieves.
Give it up, youíre killing passion with greed.
Weíre all just prisoners.
Iím not your prisoner.
