Many years stuck in this field you wouldn't think that I could feel
Would you believe me if I told you what I said was real
I've seen the darkest side of man, you might think me a liar
I watch the bodies burning when they set the world on fire

Many centuries in this penitentiary
Stuck up on this post cause they wanna try and ___ me
Hinder me, and never let me speak my piece
Keep these secrets to myself to keep the panic off the streets
I try to make a noise but I don't really have a voice
If you knew the truth, could you even make a choice
Or would I see my breath is wasted lost deep in time
Sew my mouth up shut, Nail me up, Throw me to the side

I can see, but can't speak
I can think, but can't breathe
Nailed up, out here scopin
Mouth sewn shut with eyes wide open [x2]

The sun beats on my head distractin me from my perception
The crows keep tellin lies and feedin me with their deception
I wanna break these chains, get these nails up out my back
But I can't do a fuckin thing stuck on this torture rack

I seen the devestation servin this incarceration
Evil come and go disguised in every single incarnation
Wars fought famines sweep across the land
Planes crashin people bashin seen the water from the dam
I've seen it all
So let me paint a little picture
Watch the poor get poorer and the rich get richer
It's a mothafuckin shame in this life game
When you stuck out on your own and you can't do a damn thang

I can see, but can't speak
I can think, but can't breathe
Nailed up, out here scopin
Mouth sewn shut with eyes wide open [x4]
