Prison what got you there?

Jail

The prison cell clangs shut
stark dark reality
What brought you here?
Once the same as us
now locked away in a cell.
A number nothing more
There to serve out your time
Tick, tick, tick away
tick, tick, tick day by day.

Stretching out before you
in a long sequence of sameness
Serving out time for transgressions
What goes through your mind?
Do you think of those you wronged
Or do you think of yourself.
Your family?
Theirs?
Tick, tick, tick away
Tick, tick, tick day by day.

Will this time really serve
to stop you from further ruin
or will it speed you down the path
You started in freedom
The guards look through
Straight through you
For you aren’t really you
Tick, tick, tick away
Tick, tick, tick day by day.
