A court is in session, a verdict is in
No appeal on the docket today
Just my own sin
The walls are cold and pale
The cage made of steel
Screams fill the room
Alone I drop and kneel

Silence now the sound
My breath the only motion around
Demons cluttering around
My face showing no emotion
Shackled by my sentence
Expecting no return
Here there is no penance
My skin begins to burn

(And I said, oh)
So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said, oh)
We're all held captive out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

I hear a thunder in the distance
See a vision of a cross
I feel the pain that was given
And that sad day of loss
A lion roars in the darkness
Only he holds the key
A light to free me from my burden
And grant me life eternally

Should've been dead
On a Sunday morning
Banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time

Should've been dead
On a Sunday morning
Banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time

(And I said, oh)
So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said, oh)
We're all held captive out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

I cry out to God
Seeking only His decision
Gabriel stands and confirms
I've created my own prison

I cry out to God
Seeking only His decision
Gabriel stands and confirms
I've created my own prison

So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels our selfish pride
We're all held captive out from the Sun
A Sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride

We're all held captive out from the Sun
A Sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

    This song could mean several things:.
    1: the obvious meaning to this song is that the guy is facing god in final judgement and he isn't going to heaven. He says he needs the help of jesus to escape his "own prison".
    2: another story you can get out of this is that the guy is on death row and is seeking guidance from god before he is ordered to death.
    3: another is that this guy has done terrible things in life and is haunted by the bad deeds of his past. As in he created a prison in his mind.
