Lyrics: From the magazine
1st verse:
A court is in ses-sion
A ver-dict is in__
No ap-peal on the dock-et to-day____
Just my own sin_____

The walls cold_ and pale_
The cage made_ of steel_

Screams fill_ the room
A-lone I drop_ and kneel_

Si-lence now the sound_
My breath the on-ly mo-tion a-round
De-mons clut-ter-ing a-round_
My face sho-wing no e-mo-tion.
Shack-led by my sent-ence
Ex-pect-ing no re-turn

Here there is_ no pen-ance
My skin beg-ins to burn_

Chorus:
And I said oh....(hold out while another sings:)

So I held my head up high
Hid-ing hate that burns in-side
Which only fu-els their self-ish pride_

And I said oh.....
All held cap-tive from the sun
A sun that shines on only some_
We, the meek, are all in one___

2nd verse
I hear a thun-der in the dist-ance
See a vis-ion of the cross
I feel the pain that was giv-en on that sad
Day of loss
A lion roars in the dark-ness
Only he holds the key
To free me from my burden
And grant me life eter-na-lly
(w/dist)
Should have been dead on a Sun-day morn-in
Bang-in my head
No time for mour-nin, ain't got no time

Should have been dead on a Sun-day mor-nin
Ban-gin my head
No time for mour-nin, ain't got no time

Interlude

Bridge
I cry out to God, seek-in only his dec-is-ion
Gab-ri-el stan-ds and con-firms
I've cre-at-ed my own pri-son
(repeat that once)

2nd Chorus
And I said oh....(hold out while another sings:)

So I held my head up high
Hid-ing hate that burns in-side
Which only fu-els their self-ish pride_

And I said oh.....
All held cap-tive from the sun
A sun that shines on only some_
We, the meek, are all in one___

And I said oh....(hold out while another sings:)

So I held my head up high
Hid-ing hate that burns in-side
Which only fu-els their self-ish pride_

And I said oh.....
All held cap-tive from the sun
A sun that shines on only some_
We, the meek, are all in one___

(sing that in the background while lead vocals:)
Should have been dead on a Sun-day morn-in
Bang-in my head
No time for mour-nin, ain't got no time

Should have been dead on a Sun-day mor-nin
Ban-gin my head
No time for mour-nin, ain't got no time

I cre-at-ed
I cre-at-ed
I cre-at-ed
I cre-at-ed my own prison

Should have been dead on a Sun-day morn-in
Bang-in my head
No time for mour-nin, ain't got no time....
