Born In A Prison lyrics

We're born in a prison, raised in a prison
Sent to a prison called school
We cry in a prison, we love in a prison
We dream in a prison like fools

Wood becomes a flute when it's loved
Reach for yourself and your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate

We live with no reason, kicked around for no reason
Thrown out without reason like tools
We work in a prison and hate in a prison
And die in a prison as a rule

Wood becomes a flute when it's loved
Reach for yourself and your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate

We live in a prison among judges and wardens
And wait for no reason for you
We laugh in a prison, go through all four seasons
And die with no vision of truth

Wood becomes a flute when it's loved
Reach for yourself and for your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate

Born in a prison
Born in a prison
Born in a prison
Born in a prison
