What You've Lost

To watch the sunrise on another day
After your freedom has been taken away

You start to realize just what you've lost
And start to realize at what cost

It starts to soak in as you peer through the bars and razor
wire
That you can longer do just what you desire

Your movements are monitored around the clock
And your herded around like common livestock

These hellish confines that keep you locked in
In themselves are overflowing with sin

Even though for your actions this is the fee
You long the day that you will be set free

Any chance of reform inside I see none
For your spirit and life are drained and done
