Stick Figure - Sentenced Lyrics

And as I got off the train way down in New Orleans
I grabbed my hat, I put on my coat
Reached for my spliff, yeah
I had myself a little smoke, yeah

I was sentenced, living in detention
Sentenced, living in detention

And now I'm locked up in jail
I spend my days in a cold dark prison cell
I rest alone, I watch myself grow old
And I don't deserve this, I just want to go home

I was sentenced, living in detention
Sentenced, living in detention

I should have known when I shot the man dead
There would be a bounty, a bounty for my head, yeah
Well I don't care that that young mans dead
I'm just missing one thing, a good spliff to my head

I've been talking in my sleep
I've been waking in my dreams
I've been living in the past
My good old faith is dead

I was sentenced, living in detention
Sentenced, living in detention
I was sentenced, living in detention
Sentenced, living in detention

    I gotta say I'm grateful I started listening to this "band" a few days ago. He is amazing. It was the Pepper album that featured him that got me curious and I saw he had a few songs with Slightly Stoopid. He deserves all the success he gets.

    The October air bites with a coldness that no man should endure. I'm no sweetie. I am a complete ass with no consideration for anyone but myself and my own well being. Tis precisely the reason I have received no letter's. My coldness will align sublimely with the snow that befalls me and my so called comrades, really they are just neighbors of whom I have no contact, for I haven't the patience to even hear their point of view. I will stick my tongue out to connect with the disparateness that in turn, severs, all.. camaraderie. The only play that will come of this, is isolationistic fantasy, in which, all friends, and family, are accepting of me, and my current understanding view of the world. With no contrast or rebuttal from those wiser and of more experience, I am doomed to continue in my fallacious perceptions, for eternity. This is my hell, and yet, it is my paradise. - Mad.Mardigan
