There's no way back out of this
I feel overcome with panic
With anger that has no body
I clench my fists and wail
We are barely surviving when our minds our consumed by despair
We can no longer be untouched by this

I see the van parked down the end of the street
Our hearts race, instinct screaming
I hear a siren and I want to run
Be anywhere but here

I feel the cameras scrutiny and i try to disappear
Into a place that no longer exsts in my mind
A Place where we lived without fear
Their hands not yet imprinted upon our skin
We hold each other but it's so hard to not give in

Their metal hands on my body
The sound of their voices are deafening
The cold of the steel and those four white walls
Are tearing at my mind and i'm trapped wihtin

So many people trapped and they cannot get out
Won't be trapped
Well we won't be trapped we are breaking our way out
Won't be trapped
And I won't be trapped!
