Locked Inside Lyrics

I'm locked inside

A land called foolish price

Where the man is always right

He hates to talk but loves to fight

Is that all right

On real cold days

He loans us lots of hate

But he says that we must pay

To take it all away

Is that okay

But I'm asking you will you stay with me

In this land where we are free

And I know it's rough and you've had enough

But one day we'll be happy

And when I look into the future

I see danger in its eyes

Hearts of hatred rule the land

While love is left aside

Killing plagues

The citizens while music slowly dies

I get frightened I see

I get frightened

Oh how oh how I need you baby

To keep me from going crazy

I really need you baby need you to stay

Oh how oh how I love you baby

These people are so crazy

I really need you baby need you to stay

She's quick to fight for her man

But not her rights

Even though it's 3005

When will we end this genocide

And that's not right

Her children cry no food to eat

And her friends as flies

The color black means it's time to die

And nobody questions why

'Cause they're too scared to stop the man

But I'm asking you

Will you stay with me

In this land where we are free

And I know it's rough

And you've had enough

But one day we'll be happy

'Cause when I look into the future

I see danger in its eyes

Babies die before they're born

And no one ever smiles

The writers and the artists

All are paid to tell us lies

To keep us locked inside

They keep us locked inside

Oh how oh how I need you baby

To keep me from going crazy

I really need you baby

Need you to stay

Oh how oh how I love you baby

These people are so crazy

I really need you baby

Need you to stay

I can make a change

I can start a fire

Lord make me love again

 

Fill me with desire

 

I can make a change

I can start a fire

Make me love again

Lord thank You for desire

And when I look into your pretty eyes

I almost wanna cry

I think about my life

And I don't want to live a lie

How I need you baby

I need you right by my side

I need you tonight

I need you tonight

 

Yeah how I need you baby

See I can't let you go I need you

On the other side

On the other side

 

I love you so and I'll never let you go

On the other side
