Lyrics

Locked up like a prison inmate
While the rules your wardens dictate
If you think you’re feeling jaded
Think the current times are faded
If you’ve got a care to give
Then join me in the skies above
We’re headed somewhere else
Follow me if you want to live
If you’ve seen horizons burning
If you’ve felt a desperate yearning
Time is running through the sieve
Fill up your nap sack
And throw it on your back
Follow me if you want to live
Locked up like a prison inmate
While the rules your wardens dictate
Thick and thin and tired of debate
It’s time to live
I have seen a life that’s better
Flown the skies in every weather
My story you should not misgive
Don’t stay chained to all your toils
Your prison guards you have to foil
If you want to live
Fighters standing on the right
While to the left the want to fight
And neither’s ready to forgive
So join me in the skies above
We’re headed some where else
Follow me if you want to live
Locked up like a prison inmate
While the rules your wardens dictate
Thick and thin and tired of debate
It’s time to live
If you think you’re feeling jaded
Think the current times are faded
If you’ve got a care to give
Then join me in the skies above
We’re headed somewhere else
Follow me if you want to live
If you’ve seen horizons burning
If you’ve felt a desperate yearning
Time is running through the sieve
Fill up your nap sack
And throw it on your back
Follow me if you want to live
Locked up like a prison inmate
While the rules your wardens dictate
Thick and thin and tired of debate
It’s time to live
Locked up like a prison inmate
While the rules your wardens dictate
Thick and thin and tired of debate
It’s time to live
