You're a Prisoner

This song is by Death and appears on the album ...For the Whole World to See (1975).

You try so hard cause you wanna be free
But your mind won't take you further than you can see
You may be thinking about leaving the band of man
But you're so young you don't wanna take that stand

You can't run you can't lie You can't hide
You're locked inside
Your time is up you wasted man
No one would show when you ran

You're a prisoner (a prisoner) (x2)

Your time is scrambled eggs slowly cooling on a plate
You're always hurrying because you think it'll be too late
But each time you think you've gotten past it all
You run right into a new prison wall

You can't get by if you don't try to change things within yourself
Until then, my broken friend, you will remain upon a shelf

You're a prisoner (a prisoner) (x2)

So now my long lost friend I bid you adieu
But I often wonder when I look at people like you
You want to be free but you don't try to help
You hold the key because you are locked inside yourself

You can't run you can't lie You can't hide
You're locked inside
Your time is up you wasted man
No one would show when you ran

You're a prisoner (a prisoner) (x2)
