These prison blues are standard issue
Even when our suits ain't blue
We've got shake downs on a daily
Shanks and hooch, snitches too
Those bars lockin' down a cell block
Warden's yellin' down the hall
"Boys you gonna make my prison thicker;
Higher, sharper wall"

I lift the hammer, hammer's heavy
And let that fall upon the stone
And let that shake these chains that bind me
And build these walls I call my home
I've got scars that poorly mended
And I don't seem to fit no more
Yet I wake myself each mornin'
Just prepare for what's in store

For what's in store
For what's in store for me
Woe is me

So tonight its cold as bullets
Keys walk up and down my tier
Tell myself the end is comin' soon
To chase away the fear,
That same fear that's got me drinkin'
And put these tracks all down my arm
That same fear's been inside me, ever since I was born

So I lift the hammer, hammer's heavy
And let that fall upon the stone
And let that shake these chains that bind me
And build these walls I call my home
I've got scars that poorly mended
And I don't seem to fit no more
Yet I wake myself each mornin'
Just prepare for what's in store

For me
Please no more for me
So alone for me
Its all over me

Freedom's just a distant memory
I lose more and more each day
Can't forgive the man inside me
My tranquility is dead

Every day's like every other
Every day's like every other
Every day's like every other
Every day's like...
Let me out of here
Let me out of here
Let me out of here... now
Let me out of here now
Let me out of here
Let me out of here
I've run my route in here
Knock them down in here
Let me out of here
Let me out of here
Let me be
Let me go
No you wont
You said so
Just let me out of here
Let me out now

Just let me go
far away
Never return
Not one day
Just let me out

Cause... this hammer's heavy
