lyrics

Jail

I miss the grime, I miss the filth; I miss the fear of being killed
I miss the screams I’d hear at night; the insanely brutal fights
The drugs I took to get high; I even miss my prison wife
These aren’t just some made up tales; it’s what life was like in jail

It has been about a year since I was paroled from there
My time away has led me to a state of normalcy
But I need danger and some thrills or I’ll never be fulfilled
For most it is their biggest fear, but I want to go back to jail

Scams, schemes, cons, and broken dreams
Choose a side and join a team
If you don't you'll end up used
Broken, beaten, and abused
For many years I called it home
The only one I’ve ever known
Jail
Jail

I have used all my free time to plan my next mortal crime
This will be my greatest feat; one I won't get to repeat
No longer will I feel denied once I get back inside
I won’t be gettin’ out on bail; my sentence will be life in jail

Scams, schemes, cons, and broken dreams
Choose a side and join a team
If you don't you'll end up used
Broken, beaten, and abused
For many years I called it home
The only one I’ve ever known
Jail
Jail
Jail
Jail
