Lyric "Prisoner's Song"

[Verse 1]
Looking on a past where we still had a chance
We were pawns in a game that we could not win
Now we're alone just a pick an' stone
We're dreaming of a future where our ship comes in
Dreaming of a future where our ship comes in

[Chorus 1]
Hey, ho, a prisoner's song
A game we could not win
Hey, ho, a prisoner's song
Dreaming of a future where our ship comes in

[Verse 2]
A prisoner, my thoughts are
A number in a cell, locked up like a dog in this man made hell
Marching along, another man on the gang
I'm shackled and sentenced to the ball and chain
Shackled and sentenced to the ball and chain

[Chorus 2]
Hey, ho, a prisoner's song
Marching along, another man on the gang
Hey, ho, a prisoner's song
Shackled and sentenced to the ball and chain

[Bridge]
We count days and nights
We're paying with our lives
We're paying for our wrongs
Singing in a prisoner's song
Singing in a prisoner's song

[Verse 3]
Looking on a past where we still had a chance
We were pawns in a game that we could not win
Now we're alone just a pick an' stone
We're dreaming of a future where our ship comes in
Hey, ho, dreaming of a future where our ship comes in
