A court is in session, a verdict is in
No appeal on the docket today
Just my own sin
The walls are cold and pale
The cage made of steel Screams fill the room Alone I drop and kneel Silence now the sound My breath the only motion around Demons cluttering around My face showing no emotion Shackled by my sentence Expecting no return Here there is no penance My skin begins to burn

(And I said oh) So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) All held captive Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

I hear a thunder in the distance See a vision of a cross I feel the pain that was given On that sad day of loss
A lion roars in the darkness Only he holds the key
A light to free me from my burden And grant me life eternally  Should have been dead
On a Sunday morning Banging my head
No time for mourning Ain't got no time
 Should have been dead
On a Sunday morning Banging my head
No time for mourning Ain't got no time

(And I said oh) So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) All held captive Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

I cry out to God Seeking only his decision Gabriel stands and confirms I've created my own prison I cry out to God Seeking only his decision Gabriel stands and confirms I've created my own prison 
(And I said oh) So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) All held captive Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

(And I said oh) So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) We're held captive (I created)
Out from the sun (I created)
A sun that shines on only some (I created)
We the meek are all in one (I created my own prison)

Should've been dead on a Sunday morning Banging my head
No time for mourning Ain't got no time
