Verse 1

Locked up in isolation for a crime.

Locked up forever, me, myself and time,

And walls that paint pictures in my mind

Of a perfect life I've left behind,

Made of parts and pieces stolen and snatched,

Made of love and pain in a heart that's scratched

By a broken down door's broken latch.

Pour the kerosene and strike the match.

Chorus

The person I used to be is deceased.

Bury the remains and put my soul at ease.

Save me, let my hollowed heart find release

From this eternal punishment.

Amen.

Verse 2

Locked up so far apart from the sun's rays.

Locked up in the place where nights blur with days

And I see innocence I sold away

On that perfect little cold plastic tray.

And here I am now, without love and You,

Paying the price that has been long, long due.

For straying and running from being true.

My sins caught up to me and made me new.

Chorus

The person I used to be is deceased.

Bury the remains and put my soul at ease.

Save me, let my hollowed heart find release

From this eternal punishment.

Amen.

Bridge

Oh, Father, I am sorry,

For rejecting your glory

And becoming what I've come to loathe.

Never again, that's an oath.

Chorus

The person I used to be is deceased.

Bury the remains and put my soul at ease.

Save me, let my hollowed heart find release

From this eternal punishment.

Amen.
