He had a notion as he laid there soakin'
He saw that the latch was broken
He kicked his casket open
Stewing in a pool of Hennessy, what’s an undead hustler to do? Claw his way to the surface, that’s what
The broken latch could also represent that the streets no longer control him. That he is free to make his own choices, however we see he still makes the same errors when he comes back.
