lovely prisons

His hands were your shackles
Your trust was his weapon
..............When he hits you, you don't mind
Held down, you held it in
Fell down, I wanted in
..............When he hurts you, you feel alive
Your father wouldn't love you
Your mother couldn't trust you
..............So you never knew love

I want to touch your star
Try to swim in your sea
Can I stand at your harbour
Will you talk to me?

Escape from your caged life
Free your mind from his jaged knife
..............You say you want a diamond on a ring of gold
Hiden truths in a bloody nose
blackened eyes resembled blackened lies
..............You say you want your story to remain untold
You'll come to me, be with me
You'd run with me, be free in me
..............All the promises we make
I loved you until then
I loved you until when
..............From the cradle to the grave
All I want is you
All I want is you

These lovely prisons that we all live in
Its inside these bars that ours worlds begin
There is no freedom from this
Its an eternal hell
There is no hope in this
From heaven we fell

Are we angels in diguise as merely human?
Are we the next life trapped and full of gloom?
Or are we living a just, fair and true time that's of our own devices?
If that's true how do we treat the least of us?

Or are these bodies and is this life simply a lovely prison?
