In jail, without the bail
In jail, without the bail
In jail, without the bail
In jail, without the bail
In jail, without the bail
In jail, without the bail
In jail

[Verse 1: Senim Silla]
I got confined at 17, young and naive
Dashed in to a world with killers robbers and thieves
Cramped in a 8 man cell with 10 cats
8 on the bunks and 3 on just mats
Housed in max, with cat's facing all day
Habitual ways, short to long term stays
Going back and fourth the circuit
My life hanging on a verdict and laws I'm unable to interpret
I just knew I had to do some time...

Bottom line, laid up some years or so away from mine
Locked from the sun moon and sky
, lack a fresh air
Had me feeling pail and dry
Circles forming under my eyes from sleepless weeks
Stress levels off the hook!
Reaching a new beach home sick, for my peoples in the street
A huge weight bearing on my back
Im chain smoking roll ups in attempts to kind of act and write my rap
No get-away cuz life goes on and tomorrows just another day of the same
Routine ain't a damn thing new
Either I grind, watch the tube with the phone, or get a view
So much time and so little to do
Just waiting on a court date so I can get through

Caught between a rock in a hard place
Prosecution had a hard case
So I'd have to plead or escape
If I took it to trial, they would have gave me a boat
Fresh 25 piece like a noose with a rope
I couldn't go that rout no doubt
So I waited for the best offer and I got the hell out
After getting sentenced, I was eager to ride
Just to be outside, just to see the sky
No more bars, no more court, held the county made the joint
Sounds like the resort, I was all in for it
I had my shit packed and ret, ready to jet
Standing at the bars anxious waiting on a debt (waiting on a debt)...
Without the bail

[Hook]
