Lyrics

I've lived most of my life behind these four walls
I really don't know right from wrong
Emotions suppressed - shadows that haunt me
Guidance from far beyond

And I know I'll never reach the point where
Someone's gonna come and set me free
I'll just sit and stare - I'll lose myself
Trapped within this cage

Yesterday's gone - along with my future
I can't remember what I've done
I've thrown away hope, I've thrown away dreams
I'll live this illusion 'til the very end

And I know I'll never reach the point where
I can live like everybody else
Danger lies within
So I'll slip into oblivion

Help me free myself from these chains
Open the gate - show me the road to freedom
I need shelter from the dreams that haunt me
Dreams or forgotten memories?

Truth revealed - the final solution
Away from your threats of retribution
Just beyond these gates lies freedom for me
I've got to release this pent-up anger
I'm back on the hunt, so keep back - I'm danger
Just beyond these gates lies freedom for me

Yes you're doing fine now, just turn the key
When they find you in the morning
I'll be far away
And I'll remember you - the one who set me free
So far away

Truth revealed - the final solution
Away from your threats of retribution
Just beyond these gates lies freedom for me
I've got to release this pent-up anger
I'm back on the hunt, so keep back - I'm danger
Just beyond these gates lies freedom for me

But it's all a dream, I still see these four walls
Bars in the window still dominate my view
And day after day I find myself further
Along the road to oblivion

And I know I'll never taste the things that
Most of you take for granted
There's no love in my bitter world
Only pain, fear, and disgrace

And I know I'll never reach the point where
I can live like everybody else
Danger lies within
So I'll slip into oblivion
