Black Flag Lyrics

The Bars Lyrics
There was a girl I knew
She saw the prison inside
She cursed her keeper
And swore she'd get free

Every time I see
I got my hands
Wrapped around
The Bars

I want out
Right now

She led an angel's life
On angel wings
Jumped out her
Apartment window
And hit the street below

Every time I see
I got my hands
Wrapped around
The Bars

I can't shut off
My mind

And now
I've waited,
My hands
Are wrapped around
The Bars

I'm burning,
My soul
Is pushed against
The Bars

The Bars
The lie
The lie
The lie
The lie
Lie

The jail
Behind my eyes!

My mind hates my body
My body hates my soul
I close my eyes and fight
Inside my own black hole

Every time I see
I got my hands
Wrapped around
The Bars

I want out
Right now


I've lived my life
I'm doing my time
I realize
Life's lie

Every time I see
I got my hands
Wrapped around
The Bars

I can't shut off
My mind

And now
I've waited,
My hands
Are wrapped around
The Bars

I'm burning,
My soul
Is pushed against
The Bars

The Bars
The lie
The lie
The lie
Lie
The lie

The prison
Behind my eyes!

Every time I see
I got my hands
Wrapped around
The Bars

I can't shut off
My mind

And now
I've waited,
My hands
Are wrapped around
The Bars

I'm burning,
My soul
Is pushed against
The Bars

The Bars
The lie
The lie
The lie
The lie
The lie

The prison
Behind my eyes!
