I no longer want this burden
It weighs too heavy on my soul
Leaving me weak and abandoned
As scars begin to show…


There’s a prisoner I see
Locked deep down inside
Oh My God, now I see
The prisoner outside is me…


I want the freedom that was mine
And I want it all back now
I want my life to rewind
Some way, somehow…


I want it all back now!
