STRAIGHT-JACKET


Who would want a life subjected to so much pain...
Where lonely and suppression is your middle name?
You live your life or should I say, your life lives you
Subjected to damnation in societyís view

You canít escape the pressure and the shame you feel
Blaming God for everything your heart canít reveal
Desires boiling to the surface quickly concealed
Youíre creeping out at night to find that forbidden thrill

Youíre holding on to your sanity, but youíre losing your grip
Itís your life, and in the end, youíll answer to it
Emotional conflict - You canít get out this ditch
So you live your life wearing a straight-jacket


Straight-jacket
You canít escape from wearing a straight-jacket
You canít escape...You canít escape!
Straight-jacket

You canít escape!
You canít escape!
Straight-jacket


Iím sure you heard the adage: ĎTo thyself be trueí
But itís not easy when society oppresses you
Confusion, shame, and isolation have overpowered
Youíre giviní up on love, Ďcause your heart feels devoured

Mental verses physical - the two are at war
Sexual temptation oozing from every pore
You canít escape the demons knockiní at your door
Guilty pleasures enticing you more and more

Youíre holding on to your sanity, but youíre losing your grip
Itís your life, and in the end, youíll answer to it
Emotional conflict - You canít get out this ditch
So you live your life wearing a straight-jacket


Straight-jacket
You canít escape from wearing a straight-jacket
You canít escape...You canít escape!
Straight-jacket

You canít escape!
You canít escape!
Straight-jacket


Your mask is not convincing, but she plays the fool
The unseen truth canít hurt her - thatís her twisted rule
Her friends are trying to convince her to face the truth
The lies you thought were set are now becoming unglued

Your skeletons are knocking on that closet door
They ainít goní disappear, and they wonít be ignored
Soon youíll have to answer or youíll be exposed
But you insist on trying to keep that closet closed

Youíre holding on to your sanity, but youíre losing your grip
Itís your life, and in the end, youíll answer to it
Emotional conflict - You canít get out this ditch
So you live your life wearing a straight-jacket


Straight-jacket
You canít escape from wearing a straight-jacket
You canít escape...You canít escape!
Straight-jacket

You canít escape!
You canít escape!
Straight-jacket
