  • These four walls to keep you
    One floor to sleep upon and only
    These four walls to keep you
    These four walls contain you
    Supposed to save you from yourself and
    These four walls in Holcomb
    To keep you from the sun

    And now we're faced with two wrongs
    Now we're faced with two wrongs
    I don't know, oh, I don't know
    Now we're faced with two wrongs
    Now we're faced with two wrongs
    I don't know, oh, I don't know

    We could be born to anything and now, and now
    What you have done is terrible
    And now you, and now you
    Now you carry it with you
    You carry it with you
    You carry it with you

    These four walls will keep you
    Until you face the rope
    You've only these four walls before they,
    In cold blood, hang you up

    And now we're faced with two wrongs
    Now we're faced with two wrongs
    I don't know, oh, I don't know
    And now we're faced with two wrongs
    Now we're faced with two wrongs
    I don't know, oh, I don't know

    We could be born to anything and now, and now
    What you have done is terrible
    And now you, and now you
    Now you carry it with you
    You carry it with you
    You carry it with you
    (Now you carry it with you
    Carry it with you
    Carry it with you)

    There's no view from here, no view from here, no view from here
    All you see's the sky
    Clouds passing by, clouds passing by

    We could be born to anything and now, and now
    What you have done is terrible
    And now, and now
    Now you carry it with you
    You carry it with you
    You carry it with you
    Now you carry it with you
    You carry it with you
    You carry it with you

    Now you carry it with you
    You carry it with you
    You carry it with you Writer/s: DANIEL SMITH, MARK CREW
