My Own Prison Lyrics - Creed



Review The Song (7)


A court is in session, a verdict is in
No appeal on the docket today
Just my own sin
The walls are cold and pale
The cage made of steel
Screams fill the room
Alone I drop and kneel
Silence now the sound
My breath the only motion around
Demons cluttering around
My face showing no emotion
Shackled by my sentence
Expecting no return
Here there is no penance
My skin begins to burn

(And I said oh) So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) We're all held captive
Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

I hear a thunder in the distance
See a vision of a cross
I feel the pain that was given
On that sad day of loss
A lion roars in the darkness
Only he holds the key
A light to free me from my burden
And grant me life eternally

Should have been dead
On a Sunday morning
Banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time

(And I said oh) So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) We're all held captive
Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

[Guitar break]

I cry out to God
Seeking only his decision
Gabriel stands and confirms
I've created my own prison
I cry out to God
Seeking only his decision
Gabriel stands and confirms
I've created my own prison

(And I said oh) So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) We're all held captive
Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

(And I said oh) So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) We're all held captive
Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

Should've been dead on a Sunday morning
banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time

Self Evaluate | Reviewer: Frank | 3/29/12

This song is about self evaluation... Realizing what you done is the cause of your own grief... You Reap What you Sow... God willing, he will bring you out of it, but you have to humble yourself and accept that you were wrong...

seattles son | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/11/11

this is definitely my favorite ever creed song. i remember when i was homeless on the street losing my sanity. my sister found me, demanded i come home after hugging me for five minutes, and my father and i apologized to each other. i was 22 and had runaway five years earlier. later that night this song camew on and completely explained my state of mind during those five years. i am happy to say that me and my husband have been married for 10 years and we adopted a son named derek and i couldnt be happier. those who wonder, i am a gay man and my fathers reaction to my outing was my irrational reason for running away. oh well, pencils have erasers, do they not?

Blank | Reviewer: Tyler | 6/18/10

This song is such a powerful song in my opinion. IT sends chills up my spine and gives me goosebumps everytime i sing it or listen to it. It explains to me i guess the fact of what we can do to ourselves that only God can save us from our own stupidity or we may have gone too far.

This is the Truth | Reviewer: Greg Sarnstrom | 11/20/07

I'm 46 years old but this song still resonates in my soul. Brings tears to my eyes thinking of what Jesus has done for me!ttt

Powerful song | Reviewer: Joshua David | 10/1/07

I cry out to God seeking only his decision Gabriel stands and confirms I've created my own prison. This song gives me the chills.
