A Mind Confined

by Thomas K. Hunt

A mind confined to a life for all of time
Imprisoned with no chance to be free
Locked inside with the only key

The true unknown of any other way
Chained to yourself every day
Tied to the choices that only you've made
They're the ones you'll take to the grave

It is what it is, we all make it that way
What ever happens, happens on any given day
There's no turning back and it's plain to see
a mind confined could never be free

After all it's just you in there
You're the one that truly cares
You're right there to tell you what to do
After all it's just you and you

A mind confined shackled to a life in time
Imprisoned by the way it has to be
Never knowing you're the one with the key
Always knowing you could never be free

There's no escape make no mistake
you've been locked up for good
Once you're in you're in and that's understood
It does you no good to knock on wood

You're chained to your way
The chain gets longer everyday
Doing what you do
It's only you being you

A mind confined is what happens to you
There's absolutely nothing that you can do
It's you from the beginning taking it to the end
It's been you all along there's no need to pretend

You fill your head with all your dreams
Visions in the night that aren't what they seem
You dream of what you think you need
They're only dreams but you'd love to believe

Confined inside your mind you're the only one that you can find
I'm in my mind doing my time
If you ask me I'll say I'm fine
I'm just like you with a mind confined
