Prison, prison prison
Prisoner, prisoner

Prison my prisoner

My prisoner


Prison once meant "prize"

Hold it in your hands

This beautiful thing

Concrete and blood

This prize
Earns rewards
Earns friends

It keeps you awake at night

it sleeps under your bed

It marches centuries
like water

This prize

This mark
over your eye

I am your prisoner

I am your prison
