    In the blue of the evenin' when the sun is low
    There's a shadow that creeps across my cell block floor
    And it comes to remind me what I'm in here for
    No I'm not admittin' that I done the crime
    I'm only gettin' down to doin' time
    And the passin' of days is no concern of mine.

    There's a guard on the second shift comes on at three
    And he's always about a half inch off of me
    Like he needs to keep remindin' me that I'm not free
    God forgive him 'cause he doesn't see
    He's no less a prisoner 'cause he holds a key
    And God forbid he turn his back on me.

    For every wall you build around your fear
    A thousand darker things are born in here
    And they're fed on contempt for all that you hold dear
    Truth is it doesn't matter what you do
    'Til you gaze in the mirror with an eye that's true
    And admit that what scares you is the me in you.
