lyrics

FOUR BARE WALLS

Four bare walls, I am not mad;
Four bare walls, my world.
The Lord will save me, have no doubt;
The Lord will find a way.

I’m on fire, I seethe with rage,
Against those who put me here:
I will see them burn;
I have faith; I have no fear.

In and out, in and out;
West Auckland, Gateshead, Bethlem:
From four bare walls, to four bare walls;
From freedom into bedlam.

God grant me just swift freedom,
God grant me wings to fly;
A phoenix from the ashes,
That smoulder in my eye.

Four bare walls, teaching me,
All your rules of Hell:
You will fall, and I will rise,
From my prison cell.

In and out, in and out;
West Auckland, Gateshead, Bethlem:
From four bare walls, to four bare walls;
From freedom into bedlam.

Four bare walls, four bare walls;
From freedom into bedlam.

Four bare walls, to four bare walls;
From freedom into bedlam.

You can chain me,
You can inflame me;
But you will never break me:
I will escape;
Again!

(Lyrics & Music: Gary Miller)
