My Own Prison (acoustic)
Written and performed by Creed
From the album entitled "My Own Prison"
Tabbed by Brian Stofko("Incubus")

This was a very hard song to tab because it moves by very fast, so there most likely will be some errors
in it.  Make sure to listen to the song with this, because though I tried you will never get the right 
timing of these chord changes without it.  Also this is the ACOUSTIC version and it is very different from
the electric version as far as some of the chorus chords.  Anyway here it is----

(Lyrics)

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 penence
My skin begins to burn

So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns in side
Which only fuels their selfish pride
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

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