Lost Time

Away from family and friends,

Can't remember how it started and don't know when it ends.

It hurts doing dead time lost in the pen where’s hope in a better day

When you don't know when it ends.

Birthdays missed,

People dying talking on the phone to your kids to hear them crying

Your girl telling you she loves you but she's tired of waiting

The more you stay in here, the more your soul dies trying to keep faith when there's none to keep

Restless night 'cause you're tired of sleep

Dreaming of the day you making out of jail but that's how it goes when you doing lost time in hell.
