'til the dawn shines it's light

the walls of entrapment closing in
what I did had to a sin
the pain flows under my skin
but yet I will fight
I will never stop 'til the end of the night
'til the dawn shines it's light
with my solitary cell
facing constant hell
when I'll be free I cannot tell
I never git a call
I dwell in a long stone hall
but soon my spring will come
with returning bird's hum
the tree will be green once again
and my prayers will finally end with amen
the sun will defeat the moon, stars
and the darkness
when I'll be free I can only guess
I will never stop the fight
the night will pass
'til the dawn shines it's light
days will pass
nights will fall
the sun will shine
the clouds will rain
'til the end
my pain will stay the same
