Creed - My Own Prison lyrics

Court is in session - A verdict is in
No appeal on the docket today, just my own sin
The walls, cold & 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)-
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...
...[Bridge] / [Chorus]

I cry out to God seeking only His decision
Gabriel stands and confirms,
I've created my own prison (repeat)

[Chorus x1.5]...
-(And I said, Oh)- I've created
-(All held captive)- I've created
-(Out from the sun)- I've created
-(A sun that shines on only some)- I've created
-(We the meek are all in one)-
I've created my own prison...
