Stone Walls Lyrics

It's been too many years inside this prison
Too many years just for one little fight
He got what was comin' and I think
I served enough time, I'm goin' home tonight

That stone looks mighty cold and the guard
That walks that wall is just waitin' to get a convict
In his sights but if I can clear the top, you can bet
I'll never stop 'cause I'm goin' home tonight

Because stone walls do a prison, make iron bars a cage
Any man who says they don't, never been inside
'Cause in time the bars get closer and at night
The walls grow tighter, do you feel like
There's a shackle around your mind?

Now those guards are on my tail, I can hear those sirens wail
But I know that I'll get away and that I'll be alright
'Cause I'd rather live on the run, stand free in the morning sun
Then to spend another lonely prison night

Because stone walls do a prison, make iron bars a cage
Any man who says they don't, never been inside
'Cause in time the bars get closer and at night
The walls grow tighter, do you feel like
There's a shackle around your mind?
