I paint a portrait from my cell called life
Aesop recognizes all the limitations put on people from both external and internal forces. Because of this, he often feels trapped. He gains relief from this feeling through artistic release or writing songs.
Many prison cells do not have windows to the outside world, preventing the prisoner from creating a very exact portrait of this world. Although it’s overreaching a bit, this may be the reason Aesop tends to write lyrics some people deem to be conspiracy theory.
