John Lennon – Born In A Prison lyrics

We're born in a prison
Raised in a prison
Sent to a prison called school


We cry in a prison
We love in a prison
We dream in a prison like fools


Wood becomes a flute when it's loved
Reach for yourself and your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate


We live with no reason
Kicked around for no reason
Thrown out without reason like tools


We work in a prison
And hate in a prison
And die in a prison as a rule


Wood becomes a flute when it's loved
Reach for yourself and your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate


We live in a prison
Among judges and wardens
And wait for no reason for you
We laugh in a prison
Go through all four seasons
And die with no vision of truth


Wood becomes a flute when it's loved
Reach for yourself and your battered mates
Mirror becomes a razor when it's broken
Look in the mirror and see your shattered fate
