Islands – Life In Jail lyrics

You're sure you wanna spend your life in jail?
How you gonna spend your life in jail?
I was on my way

First break the skin, next open the wound
Now force your fingers in then here's what you do
Climb inside the vein and have some heart

Said, I wanna spend my life in jail
Why you wanna spend your life in jail?
I've lost my way

Pour concrete on me delicately baby
So I can live my sedimental life sedentarily
What a life, I could just sit here for hours
And watch tv worthlessly

So that's why you choose to spend your life in jail
Who'd choose to spend their life in jail
You've lost your way

Blow my money on my favorite company
They can blow holes in my ozone
So pour that propane on my clothes
I like it when my skin glows

Besides there's nothing to live for
Unless you live a little more
Like you're going to die, oh

So what the fuck are you gonna do?
They robbed your life from you
Tell them you want to get it back
If you do I've got your back

Yes, it's something worth defending
So throw caution to the wind
And other platitudes that were written just for you

Take a shit in their swimming pool
Let them chase you if you do
Finally something is happening to you

Put an axe through the tv, blow up your radio
Though you can't see them now
You'll hear birds singing in your soul

Sneak your way past the gates in a hard heart shape
If you wanna be a shark
You better learn to stay awake

Why you wanna spend your life in jail?
