    Lyrics

    I was high and dry like the Kansas sky
    If I ached for any more I knew I'd surely die
    Night after night trying to get out of my skin
    Day after lonely day
    You'd send me back again

    I have stood inside this prison
    I have touched its stony walls
    I know before you try to run
    You gotta learn to crawl
    I tried to leave it all behind me
    I drove all night just to drive all day
    But the walls of this prison still surround me
    And I can't break away

    I held you so close I thought my soul would break
    But you were just a ghost
    The holiest mistake
    I will not be a judge or the one to set you free
    I'll just keep on drivin'
    And time's a friend to me

    I have stood inside this prison
    I have touched its stony walls
    I know before you try to run
    You gotta learn to crawl
    I tried to leave it all behind me
    I drove all night I drove all day
    But the walls of this prison still surround me
    And I can't break away

    The sentence has been read everything is done
    I wish I could say goodbye to you
    Wish I could hold the sun
    My eyes are dull and burnt
    And they lie to me sometimes
    Cause I thought I saw you cryin'

    I have stood inside this prison
    I have touched its stony walls
    I know before you try to run
    You gotta learn to crawl
    I tried to leave it all behind me
    In my dreams somehow I got away
    But the walls of this prison still surround me
    And I can't break away
