You've been here before a thousand times
You felt her fear and saw her blackened eyes
But you're scared and you're too young to fight
You block your ears from the screams and hide

Everytime you hope and pray
But the nightmare never goes away
No one hears your words
You're holding onto misery
You need someone to help you breathe
You need someone to set you free

Brother, can you hear me?
Brother, can you cry?
When you feel like a prisoner
Telling innocent [?] lies
Brother, can you hear me?
Brother, can you cry?
When you feel like the prisoner
Inside your own mind

You go to school
You turn your fear to rage
The teachers don't understand why you misbehave
Your mother wants to criticize
But she doesn't realise what's going on in your head
Your father lives away from home
He doesn't know you're on your own
You have to learn to stand up and scream

Brother, can you hear me?
Brother, can you cry?
When you feel like a prisoner
Telling innocent [?] lies
Brother, can you hear me?
Brother, can you cry?
When you feel like the prisoner
Inside your own mind

Why you suffering, why you suffering in silence?
You gotta speak out
Why you holding on, keeping onto secrets?
You gotta learn to shout out

Everytime you hope and pray
But the nightmare never goes away
No one hears your words
You're holding onto misery
You need someone to help you breathe
Someone to set you free

Brother, can you hear me?
Brother, can you cry?
When you feel like a prisoner
Telling innocent [?] lies (No one can hear you words)
Brother, can you hear me?
Brother, can you cry? (Can you cry?)
When you feel like the prisoner (Prisoner, yeah)
Inside your own mind (No one can set you free)

Brother, can you hear me?
Brother, can you cry? (Can you cry?)
When you feel like a prisoner (Prisoner)
Telling innocent [?] lies
