Imprisoned

Trapped/In your cell/Are you rotting away/In your self-constructed hell
Lost/In the fray/Are you struggling with/Just another day
Gone/All alone/When you’ve pushed away/Everybody that you’ve known
Down/All the time/Conniving and scheming/To take what is still mine

Someday soon you’re gonna see
Someday soon you’re gonna see
Someone good you’ll never be
And that’s just the answer ’cause

You never asked yourself one vital question
Of what’s inside you
Will it define you
You never allowed for yourself to be tested
Now it’s all behind you
It has defined you

Flat/On your face/Do you think we’re competing/In your all-consuming race
Fear/Of unknown/How’d you get to this point/When you haven’t even grown
Stuck/Just the same/Turning and running/From every little change
Passed/Left behind/Seems claustrophobic/Living in so small a mind

Someday soon you’re gonna see
Someday soon you’re gonna see
Someone good you’ll never be
And that’s just the answer ’cause

You never asked yourself one vital question
Of what’s inside you
Will it define you
You never allowed for yourself to be tested
Now it’s all behind you
It has defined you

Now/I am done/I’m not sticking around/As if you’re the only one
Hurts/Yes it does/But I can’t save us both/And you won’t try because

You never asked yourself one vital question
Of what’s inside you
Will it define you
You never allowed for yourself to be tested
Now it’s all behind you
It has defined you
