about

James Room - JAILED LION

lyrics

JAILED LION

WALLS, THESE FOUR DAMNED WALLS
THIS WINDOW ASPIRES TO BECOME A WEIRD ILLUSION
BARS, UNSEEN COLD BARS
AND HIDDEN CHAINS TIE MY BODY DOWN
I CAN’T SCAPE

BREATH, THIS LACK OF BREATH
THESE FINGERS MARKED IN THE WINDOWS OF THE BORDER
DREAMS, STRANGE BORDER DREAMS
WITH PAINFUL MOANS TELLING ME:
“THIS IS YOUR NIGHTMARE”

THEN, I HURT MYSELF. I CAN HEAR VULTURES ‘ROUND MY CELL.

PAIN, MY LONELY PAIN
OF VIOLENT EYES I’VE ALREADY LEARNED TO LIVE WITH
SONGS, REDEMPTION SONGS
THEY SEEM TO BE NOT ENOUGH TO SAVE MY CRUMBS OF

BLAME THAT BURN LIKE A FLAME. I CANNOT TAKE AWAY THESE CHAINS.

BLOOD, I’M OUT FOR BLOOD. DON’T WANNA DIE BEFORE I’M BORN

I HAVE LOST THE SUNSET IN THE STORM THAT BRAKES MY BACK
MAGPIE ARMIES, ACES UP MY SLEEVE
GOT TO BE AS CLEVER AS THE LIGHT BREAKING THE DARK
GONNA RIDE A CLOUD AND GET AWAY FROM HERE
