lyrics

The kind of discipline
is unerring
to spend a whole young life in solitary
The kind of strength of heart to not go crazy
Squeezing your fists at night screamin I'm not crazy
I'm not crazy
What kind of love does it require
To keep your
inner flame afire
What kind of life force must you have to breathe
Willingly each day
What kind of perseverance to believe you and IT will
all be okay

I have a hero and
he's a man of crime a man of
meth and baseball bats and gang signs and
on a plate of retribution he dines and he's the warrior seed in this
heart of mine

Yes there's something
to be learned
in the freedom you reflect
I see that very last light in you
That can't be taken
Oh brother I can see the struggle in your
face
But I love the way you twist those chains
with grace

Teach me how to hold on when
I'm on the outside looking in
Teach me how to be patient
And feel forgiveness as a discipline
Because
Aint no restoration in retribution and this form of justice is crime
I know you've got that wisdom
That comes from stale bread and too much time

I have a hero and
he's a man of crime a man of
meth and baseball bats and gang signs and
on a plate of retribution he dines and he's the
warrior seed in this
heart of mine yes there's something
to be learned
in the freedom you reflect
I see that very last light in you
That can't be taken
Oh brother I can see the struggle in your
face
But I love the way you
twist those chains with grace
Love the way you twist those chains with grace

Aramark
You
Missed you mark
You can't take what can't be seen
Pathology you let him be
Just a healthy healthy seed
