The Lock Down Denial (Cute Is What We Aim For)

Slightly bruised and a little bit used I never thought they'd be so amused Brother's bond broken by the bailiff For the first time Prison blues, gotta pay my dues Now I know I'll never be refused If I, If I, If I die inside Would anyone realize? If I, If I, If I die inside Would anyone realize? I lived a lie Chains and stripes I ain't gonna sleep tonight This is no way for a man to live his life Paranoid on the prison-yard pavement For the first time So I serve time for my addiction I pay the price for my affliction The judge took my life with his conviction For the last time Lights out, lock down, don't make a sound Lights out, lock down If I, If I, If I die inside Would anyone realize? (Would anyone realize?) If I, If I, If I deny the crime Would I, would I, serve the time? I lived a lie Someone's behind the drum set in my head Thumping a different beat myself to the sound of the walking dead Rinse and repeat Someone's behind the drum set in my head, in my head, head If I, If I, If I die (yeah) If I, If I, If I die inside Would anyone realize? (Would anyone realize?) If I, If I, If I deny the crime Would I, would I, serve the time? (Serve the time) I lived a lie
