lyrics

I'm not sitting in a jail.
I couldn't say that at all.
I'm not sitting in a prison cell
scratching my name into the walls.
But even so I feel like a locked up man.
But even so I feel like a locked up man.

I can't let my guard down.
I've gotta watch what I say.
I think of all the years leading up to now and ask myself,
"how'd I get this way?"
And even so I feel like a locked up man.
Even so I feel like a locked up man.

I'd be ok if I could telephone Dad.
Getting sick of feeling this sad.
When all the trust, the trust that we had
is perished and gone.

Now his boots are under the ground
and the tie that they lowered him down in
and his bones are rattling secrets but I can't make them out.
