about

This is a song about recidivism

lyrics

Bright orange shirts in the sun
And walking in circles
Three more years and he's done
If he gets his parole

Windows close but you can always see through them
Locked but they'll open again
Guided through the penitentiary system
Not so clear where it ends

'No regret' was written onto his fingers
From ink shot out from a gun
Cultivated spitefulness and hardened by anger
Hesitation, no he has none

But he was born in the City of the Gods
We don't grieve for the thieves
When we say that they blew all their chances
Well he was born in the City of the Gods
We believe he can leave
By the graces and kindness we granted

Every day is spent with these forsaken creatures
Budding flowers cut at the stem
Thrown away so long for having criminal features
It's so normal, he's one of them

Well he was born in the City of the Gods
We don't grieve for the thieves
When we say that they blew all their chances
Well he was born in the City of the Gods
We believe he can leave
By the graces and kindness we granted
