lyrics

They got me locked in a room, in a death trap tomb,
Day 21, I come down with the shit lung
Coughin up a storm, coughin up a storm
And it’s a long line tonight to get my lady on the line tonight…
Not enough guards to guard us when we roam the grounds
So we on lockdown
They got us squattin in tents, marchin in tens,
There’s only one way out, yes, there’s only one, yes, there’s only one, yes,
There’s only one way out, yes, there’s only one, yes, there’s only one, yeah,
I never found it, yet…
Officer DJ Jerome, lemme get one more classic track for the ride home.

For certain, set on convertin to that old-time religion y’all keep singin bout
It’s my only one way out, yes, there’s only one, yes, there’s only one, yes,
There’s only one way out, yes, there’s only one, yes, there’s only one, yes,
There’s only Airbrush Jesus, he does the velvet justice,
Ink a muscle with the image of the blessed and fair breasted Mother…
Officer DJ Jerome, lemme get one more from the hymnal before lights out, Bro.
Lights out, Bro.

The other end of another solitary tube, the recruiter waits for you,
Says if you really loved your savior, you’d emulate his behavior exactly,
And you know what that means!
No armor on a Hummer like a soccer mom drives,
A homicide bomber with a hundred extra lives,
Suckin on a splinter while I’m up on Cloud 9
As you drop another deuce under the right of the divine!

So you can sing right along next time he preaches,
What the hell, it’s all spelled out in the goddamn Pledge of Allegiance
And you can call me a liar, but ain’t there more bobwire,
Oh, across the road, around the militarized zone?
They got me starvin the blues, I’m startin to lose it,
Day 33 beat the shit outta me
Spittin up the blood and some bicuspids, and then
They confiscate our commissary cigars!

One way out, there’s only one, yes, there’s only one, yes,
There’s only one way out, yes, there’s only one, yes, there’s only one, yes, there’s only
One way out, there’s only one, yes, there’s only one, yes,
There’s only one way out, yes, there’s only one, yes, there’s only one, yeah,
I never found it….not yet!

Officer DJ Jerome, lemme get one more coat of wax for this killin floor!
One more from the hymnal before lights out,
One more classic track for the ride…. home.
