Verse 1 (Clean)
~~~~~~~
A court is in session, a verdict is in
No appeal on the docket today, just my own sin
The walls cold and pale, the cage made of steel
Screams fill the room, alone I drop and kneel

Verse 2 (Clean)
~~~~~~~
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

Chorus (Clean first time, Distorted on all repeats)
~~~~~~
           F5
And I said oh
D5                   E5                          
So I held my head up high hiding hate that burns inside
Eb5                            D5
Which only fuels their selfish pride
           F5
And I said oh
D5                            E5                             Eb5
All held captive out from the sun, a sun that shines on only some
                       D5 
We are meek are all in one

Verse 3 (Clean)
~~~~~~~
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

Verse 4 (Distortion)
~~~~~~~
D5                    Bb5         F5                     [Riff 1]
Should have been dead on a Sunday morning banging my head
D5                   Bb5          F5 
No time for mourning ain't got no time [Riff 1]

[Repeat Verse 4]
[Repeat Chorus]

Bridge (Distortion)
~~~~~~
F5                         C5          D5
I cry out to God seeking only his decision
               Bb5                  F5             C5 D5
Gabriel stands and confirms I've created my own pris-o-n

No time for mourning ain't got no time
