lyrics

i don't want to be incarcerated
i don't want to be in custody

i recognize the pattern, well this one i lay out
when something looks too perfect i graciously bow out
give myself too much credit, sometimes not enough
but i keep making choices to save art and kill love

i don't want to be incarcerated
i don't want to be in custody

several times see me at the crossroads
smart enough to know
i should choose the way to go
but find a way to say no
gut instincts take control
filaments into your soul
you can choose a path but
sacrifice for rock and roll

i don't want to be incarcerated
i don't want to be in custody

if the threat of a lifetime
all the way in solitary
accepting the blindfold
to skate over tragedy
who is it that says so
bestow the key to mind control
what we've resigned, in this pact
is our logic of yes and no
