Mister bus driver set me free;
Just take me to New York and let me be
He’s sick of living in New Orleans and seeing his friends die or go to prison. His freedom, but a bus ride away, lies in New York City.
On the real, the bus driver sorta have Jay’s fate in his hands. He’s controlling this big-ass vehicle and one wrong turn could send them all to the abyss. It’s kinda ironic since bus drivers aren’t the most esteemed members of society.
