  • Lyrics: I'm locked in this prison, staring at the wall My fate sits beside me and beckons and calls My heart thinks of nothing but walking out the door My will isn't walking, it's lying on the floor I can't stop my mind I can't run away I can't fight this feeling That's holding me hostage again My eyes have been blinded, my wits have been dulled All that I wander is this dark grey cell Everything changes but I stay the same I hurt those who love me and do it again I can't stop my mind I can't walk away I can't fight this feeling That's holding me hostage again Fear is the ocean I'm drowning in tonight Hope is the lifeboat that's barely in sight Love is the waves that are tearing at my soul Faith is the reason I'm breathing at all I can't stop my mind I can't look away I can't fight this feeling That's holding me hostage again I can't close my eyes I can't run away I can't stop this thing That is holding me hostage today
