08. Chinatown Jail Break

Jungle Of The Midwest Sea
by Flatfoot 56



 

I run but never get away
Chinatown jail break

Sitting in this cell these bars wide open
Stricken by the light I fear the unspoken
The Son is my hope my shelter and my guide
But Id rather choose this lonely cell this hole where I hide

I run (3x) but never get away
Chinatown jail break

The darkness of this hole has its claws in my soul
Who needs the warms I choose the cold
My freedoms not that Ive conditioned my soul to want
Im bound beneath the surface, my selfishness I flaunt
Hes calling my name yet I choose the same




Behind the Song:
"This song talks about the absurdity of spiritual bondage. It is written form the perspective of one who is sitting in habitual sin (jail cell) and has no desire to get out. Even though the conditions on the outside of his cell are much better, he is blinded by the darkness he wraps himself in. The reason for the name 'Chinatown Jail Break' is because of the song's Asian style sound." - Flatfoot 56
