Maverick Sabre - These Walls Lyrics

These walls, these bars,
These halls, this prison yard,
That's all he sees, that's all he sees,

These walls, these bars,
These halls, these prison guards,
That's all he sees, no where to believe

[Verse 1:]
In the system since a young man,
Caught him up at 15,
In and out for 2 years,
Then spat him back...
Back to normality,
Bringing up his younger sister,
Feeding her and clothing her so robbing was a must,
Everyday there was a job,
Either a box or shot, got stabbed, lost friends,
Lost the lot in the end,
He got nicked so now he's sitting in his cell
With 4 years looking at these...

These walls, these bars,
These halls, this prison yard,
That's all he sees, that's all he sees,

These walls, these bars,
These halls, these prison guards,
That's all he sees, no where to believe

[Verse 2:]
Scream and scars became a product of what he was seeing,
Cold and hard, the only way he could live was to be them,
Razor blades lightly pushed underneath his door at night,
Locked away in the hole, the dark, too many times,
Lyrics and words on tapes and books kept his mind awake
And free from this, they talked to him and taught him things
That no teacher ever did, now at 22 he's spat back out and
Left alone at the prison gates, now he's 29 and making a
Name for himself in a legal way, but he still sees

These walls, these bars,
These halls, this prison yard,
That's all he sees, that's all he sees,
These walls, these bars,
These halls, these prison guards,
That's all he sees, no where to believe

  18. Luke Clarke

  19. TabooStudios

    can't stop playing this song <3

  20. TwistedWheelbarrow

    @liamthelegend87 I don't think you quite understand what good music is...

  21. Nicola Carroll

    @liamthelegend87 Everybody sings in a different voice to the way they speak, that's why it's called 'singing' and not 'speaking'. It still sounds great and you're clearly just being provocative leaving a comment like that on this video.. If you've got a critisism for Maverick Sabre don't say it in such a rude way, otherwise you're gunna have fans who are on this page to ENJOY THE GOOD MUSIC having a go at you for ages :L

  22. Fledgling Gypsy Soul

    @bunnyhopnubs oh have a great time, I don't understand why you think I am jealous? Or why you are being so hostile?
    I started to love his songs and I think he is the greatest singer ever to walk the planet.

    Give Maverick a kiss from me.:D

    I am studying to be a lawyer so hopefully you consider that to be something good.

  23. lydia english

    is he irish?

  24. Luci Cotton

    0:00 best bit of song ;)

  25. Christian Irish

    celtic soul...

  26. Tye Tyee

    @liamthelegend87 Jealousy is a very ugly thing and it appears to me that you have turned a deep shade of Green.also if you aint got nothin good to say don't say fuck all!

  27. LGCShiftyman

    this tune is too much. maverick is pure talented.....haters can choke on penis.....

  28. Daniel Hartley

    Your head looks like a baked bean.

  29. JESSTA

    @jismick hence the he has a light south london accent, i could be believe he's irish but please make a valid analysis in future

  30. jismick

    @liamthelegend87 Hes irish hence the voice, met the guy after his concert at the koko in camden. You are soooo gassed up ive been going and seeing this guy play for 2 years, before youtube had even heard of him and he hasnt changed or modified his style to make it big you uncultured fuck.

  31. Cameron Sellers

    gotta wish the song went on for longer

  32. krissaric5678

    this guys amazing he's got pure talent seems like a good lad to

  33. MrBuglebuggy

    Too much angst on here, Just enjoy the music.

  34. StaynSit

    he proper doesn't even put on a voice. If you ever heard him speak you'll know this....

  35. Laurie Bamber

    @liamthelegend87 Eh what does it matter if its still talent? You're also implying that genres dont differ in terms of tone, pitch, theme ect.. Would you respect Justin Bieber for singing blues in his own voice? Its not the artists or how the artists produce the music, its the music.

  36. liamthelegend87

    @TheMcjnr09 Well I give a shit isn't that why I wrote the comment? Pay attention...And this shit head is the carbon copy... just like winehouse, Adelle... the list goes on really! It's the emperor's new clothes! These morons with their silly put on voices which we are supposed to like because we are told to?? I bet you like Rebecca Ferguson as well? If the answer is yes then you my friend are the idiot. Now stop wasting my time and go away!

  37. SamBaconn

    does anyone know if this is his song or a cover?

  38. Nikhil Patel

    @RaYzoRtv1 Haha rizzle kicks, thats some funny shit. Not even comparable, this is pure talent

  44. Fledgling Gypsy Soul

  45. Janie Bee

  46. Jack McBride

    @justsay0wned he said this a year ago. Div!

  56. Dominya666

    love hearing the irish twang in your accent come out in this tune. Muchom respect man =)

  57. Dan Rowland

    @BonzaiBg I respect your enquiry, but mine and 'UKpatriot90's disagreement wasn't involving supremacy between the two countries, just that his correction was false, and our disagreement became agreement, in the negative exposure to the USA. So i believe your regards are unnecessary, and my pride has no association with this debate, therefore i hope you don't mind me fighting my own corner.

  58. Seekay K

    @huggy3ear Hes big now .

  59. BonzaiBg

    @DanRowland4 Wikipedia, "Black And Tans."

  60. BonzaiBg

    @DanRowland4 "I hate their history, I hate the Union Jack. I'll never fight for any man or any flag." The truth hurts - but shit, it makes some wicked music, huh. Swallow your pride and breathe out some sense.

  61. BonzaiBg

    @DanRowland4 In East London he was a small, innocent, naive child. When he moved to Wexford, Ireland, he grew up; and his voice, soul and lyrics were formed. That's where his inspiration started. He got fed up with CLASSification... he wanted to break the mould and express his OWN self regardless of nationalities.

  62. GeneralRebelCulture

    Lol about it sounds like fuckin reggae. Did you even shut the fuck up n actually listen to him sing. He's mad talented uno like wtf. People like you are the reason the charts is filled wif clowns!!

  63. Dan Rowland

    @UKpatriot90 XD

  64. Dan Rowland

    @DJAzaMorph He's english

  65. Dan Rowland

    @UKpatriot90 Yes fair enough, lets just say we both dont want him escaping to america to be controversially destroyed?:)

  66. Dan Rowland

    @UKpatriot90If you were a fan of Mav, you'd know he supports Arsenal, as there an english club, supports England if they were to play Ireland, and describes his childhood in Hackney a lot more enjoyable than the time in Ireland in his single 'Sometimes'.

  67. Dan Rowland

    @UKpatriot90 He was born in Hackney, London.

  68. Bobsaget937

    2dislikes?????!!! BUT WHY????
    that's a crime against music....

  69. Pisineenfles
