You want me to be the silent one
But I can't run from what I know
When it makes me mad, so mad, I've got to let it go
It's better it's said than left undone
Out in the sun we'll see it clear
And if I'm alone, alone I'm chained to this idea
Prisoner of conscience, but the
Captain of my soul
Prisoner of conscience, but the
Captain of my soul
I said that I'd found my matching heart
And that's a start to build upon
Foundation strong, so strong, it never should go wrong
If I see a break within these walls
If it's too small, we can repair
But if it's much, too much I'll break the hurt and break the despair
Prisoner of conscience, but the
Captain of my soul
Prisoner of conscience, but the
Captain of my soul
To shout out loud seems an easy touch
And yet so much stands in the way
So I want to be heard, be heard you've got to let me say
I'm saying it loud even though I've found
The tender ground that hurts so much
But it has to be said, be said, the truth can hurt so much
Prisoner of conscience, but the
Captain of my soul
Prisoner of conscience, but the
Captain of my soul
Prisoner of conscience, but the
Captain of my soul
Prisoner of conscience, but the
Captain of my soul
