This Place Is A Prison

May 27, 2013 - 2 comments

This song is an apt description of addiction. 'This Place Is A Prison' by The Postal Service


This place is a prison
These people aren't your friends
Inhaling thrills through 20 dollar bills
And the tumblers are drained and then flooded again

There's guards at the ramps armed to the teeth
And you can case the grounds
From the Cascades to Puget Sound
But you are not permitted to leave

I know that it's not a party
If it happens every night
Pretending there's glamor and candelabra
When you're drinking by candlelight

What does it take to get a drink in this place?
What does it take, how long must I wait?
What does it take to get a drink in this place?
What does it take, how long must I wait?

How long must I wait?

I'm a little late, but I love the Postal Service. And you are right, it hits the nail on the head.
