Thrice Wood & Wire Lyrics

Last updated: 09/14/2009 12:00:00 PM

14 years behind these bars,
In 12-foot square of cold cement.
I've lost nearly everything,
For a crime of which I'm innocent.

But all my suffering's a light and momentary pain,
While the weight of an endless glory still remains to me.

A dead man walking down the hall,
To meet a mess of wood and wire.
They lead me where men fear to tread-
But towards the thing I most desire.

For all my suffering's a light and momentary pain,
While the weight of an endless glory still remains.
Throw the switch son; I know you ain't got a choice.
The dawn is coming; all is well, I will rejoice.
