Open Prison Day

Into an open prison
I let my feelings go
But no one there seemed to care
No one seemed to know

Behind those four walls
I became a man of stone
Who sat all day and night
Afraid to go back home

Sister, oh sister
Hear what I must say
Let me talk it over
On this open prison day

But those inside these four walls
With those open prison doors
Did not show any interest
In any outside chores

I could roam around for hours
To play any game I chose
Do I win or do I loose
No one even cares

if the hunter wounded me
I would sit and bleed
While they sat in self-absorption
Watching their TV

if I shed a tear or cried
No-one there would hear
In the open prison of the night
No one dared draw near

The hunter trapped me dead
I fell into his snare
For many years I hid the tears
While imprisoned there

So don’t treat your young so coldly
Talk to them each day
Let them know you love them
Stay with them and play

For in a darkened corridor
Guards of bitter dreams
In life’s open prison
Nothing’s what it seems
