  • 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 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

    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 held captive
    Out from the sun
    A sun that shines on only some
    We the meek are all in one

    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 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 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
