A Beautiful Prison

You said your life is your own
But is it?
All the stories you told
Did anybody listen?
Everything that you’ve known
Now it’s gone do you miss it?

In a beautiful prison
And there’s no way home
You’re surrounded by strangers
Who number you as their own

They watch you stare out to sea
A mystery
Every face in the street
Says you just need convincing
All they want from you is peace
But you can’t stop resisting

In a beautiful prison
And there’s no way home
You’re surrounded by strangers
Who number you as their own

They’ll be, they’ll be, they’ll be seeing you

Disappear
Disappear into the crowd
You’re just one of the crowd
You’ll see, you’ll see
You’re just one of the crowd
You’ll see, you’ll see…
But you’re not one of the crowd
And maybe they’ll see…

In a beautiful prison
And there’s no way home
You’re surrounded by strangers
But still you’re always your own…
