Zoetrope – Detention lyrics

Being kept after hours behind closed doors
You get reprimanded for bad behavior
And you ain't got no choice but to wait the time
Meanwhile you contemplate the idea of escape


Detention - detention - detention
Well I can't wait any longer

You won't receive any sympathy
From those around you 'cuz you're in too deep
So it's up to you to make your move
When his back is turned you fly out that door


So the chase begins down the corridor
Up and down the stairs you're runnin' everywhere
And there's no way out when you've been confined
To an institution where they play with your mind

Detention (4x) yaaaaa!
You ain't got no choice but to surrender!
Detention (8x)
