Prisoner of Conscience



Prisoner of conscience

Grey afternoon

Left to fend off flies

Where are your shoes?

 

How did justice pass you by?

How did you get a lie

for your piece of the 

American pie?

 

You know why

You set your sights way too high

You ain't afraid to 

Nightfly

Lift diamonds out 

of the midnight sky.

 

And you pick the pieces 

of yesterday's dreams

and you don't pass go

just go directly to jail

for building bridges across the sea

for living on the edge in 

condemned property

Tryin to stay out of

poverty.

 















Prisoner of conscience

Hot summer night

How do you pass the time

given to you from on high?

The pipes of Pan

are scratched in the walls

they're counting up the years

What judgement we don't see

We don't fear

 

And you pick the pieces 

of yesterday's dreams

and you don't pass go

just go directly to jail

for building bridges across the sea

for living on the edge in 

condemned property

Tryin to stay out of

poverty.

 

Prisoner of Conscience 

where are you now?

We'll talk to you through the

stars somehow.

We think of you the whole night long

We sing to you in every song

And we sing

Love thy neighbor

Love thy neighbor

Love thy neighbor

Love thy neighbor

Now.
