Institutionalized Man / Album Fallen / February 15 2016
Lyrics by Ed Millican

Intro:
Portrait of a wasted life
I could see it in his tired eyes
Hard to believe what I heard
These were his exact words.....

V1:
In my youth, I made mistakes,
Let my rage control my fate
Now 4 decades behind these iron gates
Where only sweet music escapes

Pre-Chorus:
LIFE is what they give you
And that´s always what they take
Where´s the world I once knew?
For the first time, I´m afraid

Chorus:
I command no respect
I keep no pride on the outside
There is nothing Left
Now I see, life beyond bars is a prison for me

V2:
Countless nights, reaching back in time
Angry and drunk when I stepped over the line
Regret weighs heavy on a sober mind
Been thinking about it for 4 dimes

Pre-Chorus:
No way of preparing
Stepped into a free mans´ shoes
When I finally stopped caring,
They opened the gates & cut me loose

Chorus:
I command no respect
I keep no pride on the outside
There is nothing Left
Now I see, life beyond bars is a prison for me

BRIDGE:
Dreamed of this moment in the Glorious Sun
But that was long ago when I was still young
Within these walls, I was someone who mattered
Not a helpless old man, hopeless and shattered

Chorus:
I command no respect
I keep no pride on the outside
There is nothing Left
Now I see, life beyond bars is a prison for me
