Inside four walls I live my life, doesn't matter what I've done
The government's always right
They tell us what to be, tell us what to believe
They're wrong, my friend is gone

Inside four walls, inside four walls
The day they took away my friend

Injustice made its mark
All the political whores only come out after dark
If anyone knows the way
Build me a bridge so I won't fall astray

Inside four walls, inside four walls my friend
They took away your freedom
And the pigs still preach their lies

The system falls apart
The pigs still laugh feeding off our broken lives
Can anyone tell me why
Violent Crime means far less time?

Inside four walls, inside four walls my friend
They took away your freedom
And the pigs still preach their lies

It is a known fact, that in the United States of America, typically, drug offenders do more time than child molesters, rapists, and murderers. Is this Justice? Is this the American way?
No

Inside four walls, inside four walls my friend
They took away your freedom
And the pigs still preach their lies
Inside four walls, inside four walls my friend
They took away your freedom

But they'll never take your mind

    General CommentThis song is about living in a prison cell (metaphorically, obviously) and yet the government preaches lies (thd land of the free; this war on terror). Pretty cool song.

    General CommentOn various interviews the band stated that this song was dedicated to a friend of theirs who got a ridiculously long sentence for possession of drugs, despite it being his first offense.

    General Commentexactly, banekeeper....the lyrics pretty much tell you this straight out even without knowing that. Nothing really metaphorical about it. One of their rare straight-forward songs.
