Mommy and daddy had a lock and key
So she went over the wall and she was finally free
She wants to know why did the TV tell those lies it lied to me?
It said I know, I know, I know
You've earned your right to breathe
Don't give it up, that's why you have to leave
You know your number's up

Emptied her pockets on an ugly road
Why did nothing grow when the seeds were sown?
And why did the water turn the soil into mud?
Big plans, fat chance, small minds
They took it all away, and won't give it back
Now you have to stay
I-told-you-so's attack.

Was it fate or dumb mistakes that made things like they are?
And did she have a choice
Ragged shoes on wet cement, she's talking to the king

Only the peasant hears her voice
It's just noise

And when she hides her eyes
She's sure that no one sees her
Standing by the garbage cans finally alone
And when she shuts her mouth
She's sure that no one hears her screaming
At all of those who say she can't go back to prison

Can't see his face, only yellow teeth
Chewing on his tongue splitting easy money
Oh what an ugly man, he thinks she's beautiful
What next, who knows, who cares?
Is it an even trade, her time, his cash?
Decisions being made while treasures turn to trash

And what is the value of a fine young mind?
When you just can't see what you left behind?
And why did her parents lie?
They lied and lied and lied and lied
They said you'll see what's right, you'll see
But you can only see what's wrong from below what's right
Will she be there for long?
Not without a fight

And when she hides her eyes
She's sure that no one sees her
Standing by the garbage cans finally alone
And when she shuts her mouth
She's sure that no one hears her screaming
At all of those who say she can't go back to prison
When she hides her eyes
She's in prison
