Adolescents – Within These Walls lyrics

Within these walls
Within these walls is pain and strife
Within these walls it's yours tonight
Within these walls you'll sacrifice
Within these walls

We're prowling to and fro
Prowling to and fro
Prowling to and fro
With nowhere else to go

We need a lamb to slaughter
On the center stage
Inside this house tonight
We'll please the gods of rage
From the center stage
With our sacrifice

With our sacrifice

Within these walls
We don't look the same
Within these walls
We all feel pain
We're all in this game
Make no mistake

There comes a time to stand and fight
Or turn and walk away
The simple choice
Between wrong and right
To kill or pray
Blood's been spilled all over the step
When you choose to lie
When the bleeding heart
In your traditions ran dry

Dreams are broken on the boulevard
Outside this house of blues
By misery makers, undertakers
Movers, shakers, liars, fakers
Dreams are broken on the boulevard

Within these walls
