PRISON FOR MYSELF

I’ll build a prison for myself, So I don’t have to think and I don’t have to see
I’ll throw my ass in jail in a cell made of nothing but stupidity
Yes I’ll convince myself, that it’s just what I need, it’s really what’s best for me.

It might be a prescription, a total contradiction,
A self-imposed restriction, it might be an addiction,
Might be a whole lotta stuff to own, that I can pay for all the rest of my days
To stay stuck here in this twilight zone, there are so many different ways

To build a prison for myself, So I don’t have to think and I don’t have to see
I’ll throw my ass in jail in a cell made of nothing but stupidity
Yes I’ll convince myself, that it’s just what I need, it’s really what’s best for me.

It might be a holy book, a set of regulations
Or a cool and trendy look, or just procrastination
So that I never have to chase my dreams, I’ll never lose and I’ll never fail
In this Monopoly Game it seems, so much safer here in jail.

I’ll build a prison for myself, So I don’t have to think and I don’t have to see
I’ll throw my ass in jail in a cell made of nothing but stupidity
Yes I’ll convince myself, that it’s just what I need, it’s really what’s best for me.

I need material expansion, to fill my big beige McMansion
All the latest gadgetry, maybe that will set me free
I need some more distraction, can’t get no satisfaction
Whatever’s on the TV, Hollywood celebrities,
I need more & more & more…..

about

Jennis Toronto, Ontario

Jennis (Dennis Gaumond & Jen Gillmor) delivers more sound, variety and fun than one would think could fit into a single touring vehicle. The unique blend of cello and dobro is also augmented by unusual sounds, such as didgeridoo, custom-tuned harmonicas, flute, wah-guitar, jaw harp and wazinator. Their sound is bluesy, at times funky, jazzy or folky, with a hint of exotic ethnic influences. ... more
