"Locked (Tear Me Down)" as written by and Michael D/moffitt Morehead....
You put me on my cross
That's what you did
That's what you'll always do
You pierced my aching side
Until the bloody water flowed
Onto the ground, my mother cried
Mother Mary's not her name
As the nails throbbed
Slowly in my hands
The vinegar tastes fine

Won't you hide with me
Don't ask me why

[Chorus]
Why do you tear me down
Why do you smear my crown
Why do you tear me down
Why do you smear my crown

A crown of thorns deep in my head
I cried a tear as they drank my blood
They yelled and screamed
Mocked my name
Never really understood
Who are you to cast a stone
When I hold as many stones as you
You've nailed me to my cross
That's what you did
That's what you'll do

Won't you hide with me
Don't ask me why

[Chorus]

It seems I'm locked in my closet
And that's where I make my stand

I'm locked away
I'm put away
All hope I can't contain
You keep me from a world outside
Where nobody knows my name
You've got me down
