Prisoner Lyrics

Prisoner - Jordan Bratton/Chance the Rapper

Just because it glows

That doesn't mean everything's on show

 

No riches don't make a happy home

No riches don't compensate for soul

 

Diamond just a stone

She gives everything to something

That don't mean anything

But that's all she knows

She'll never go back the way she came came

 

Now is this just

Is this just a prisoner without a cage

 

Not a life she chose

But she followed the gold code it wrote

What she wanted it couldn't be sold

 

She started to lose her way

 

You didn't take communion after the sermon

 

You don't believe there's a God above you

 

With His plan for you

 

So you sniff it and drink

And changin' who you are

Things that make you feel alive

 

Somethin' wrong with that

 

But I feel for you

 

Now is this just

Is this just a prisoner without a cage

 

So trapped in this life

 

You better make it out alive

 

You better give it another try

 

Or you won't make it out alive

Cage bird singin' on tour

 

Just an amateur tryna mature

 

Grew so fast that she never grew up

 

Got to move somewhere new

Just 'cause it's newer

 

Everyday it rain where she live

She say you lettin' all the air out

TVs are for windows where she stare out

Extra hours at parties

Tryna find some jacket

She don't even care about

She ain't even wear it out

 

Building nests on arms Breast so warm

You think of mother's bosom

 

She's so green you'd flip

But probly shouldn't

I hope she catch a tail

And her circles get smaller

Before the drill ain't a drill

And the wolf is for real

And the wolf is for real

Now is this just

Is this just a prisoner without a cage

So trapped in this life

 

You better make it out alive

 

You better give it another try

 

Or you won't make it out alive

Now silent and slowly

 

After a while she's lonely

 

She waits to die

 

A livin' waste of time

 

All this green no blue skies

All sunny days are cold as ice

The frozen sun she's trapped inside

Is it just is it just a prisoner without a cage
