In the shit house a shotgun
     Praying hands hold me down
     Only the hunter was hunted
     In this tin can town
     Tin can town

     No stars in the black night
     Looks like the sky fell down
     No sun in the daylight
     Looks like it's chained to the ground
     Chained to the ground
     The warden said
     The exit is sold
     If you want a way out
     Silver and gold

     Broken back to the ceiling
     Broken nose to the floor
     I scream at the silence, it's crawling
     It crawls under the door
     There's a rope around my neck
     And there's a trigger in your gun
     Jesus say something
     I am someone, I am someone
     I am someone

     Captain and kings
     In the ships hold
     They came to collect
     Silver and gold
     Silver and gold

     Seen the coming and going
     Seen them captains and the kings
     See them navy blue uniforms
     See them bright and shiny things
     Bright shiny things

     The temperature is rising
     The fever white hot
     Mister, I ain't got nothing
     But it's more than you got

     Chains no longer bind me
     Not the shackles at my feet
     Outside are the prisoners
     Inside the free
     Set them free
     Set them free

     A prize fighter in a corner is told
     Hit where it hurts
     Silver and gold
     Silver and gold
