Cell 32

(c)2002 Shandy Lawson (BMI)


I don't look like I belong here
But then none of us do
Smiley looks like someone's grandpa
And I'm just twenty-two
Once I had a life before me
Now all of that's through
By this time next year
They'll put someone else here
In Cell 32

My world measures six feet by nine
That's fifty-four squared
You can take your time but it's still three steps
To walk from here to there
And the rain that falls outside these walls
Is the best drink anywhere
And when my life is through
They'll put somebody new
In Cell 32

They'll send a spiritual advisor
When my big day arrives
And they'll let me see some family
If they can make the drive
And there'll be folks outside, waving signs
About the sanctity of life
But when my life is through
They'll put somebody new
In Cell 32

There's a man who'll stand behind me
With powers near divine
He gets paid a hundred & fifty bucks
To turn that switch three times
He's either underpaid, or overpaid--
I still can't decide
But at twelve-oh-two
They can put somebody new
In Cell 32
